Three days after being dismissed from the Louisville basketball team for violating a university of policy, former Cardinal forward Chane Behanan has been given his release to transfer to another school.
However, Louisville is not allowing Behanan to transfer to schools in the American Athletic Conference or the Atlantic Coast Conference.
“In accordance with NCAA Bylaw 126.96.36.199, the University of Louisville grants all institutions with the exception of Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) member schools permission to contact University of Louisville student athlete Chane Behanan,” according to a document that was obtained by SNY.TV.
“Chane has expressed an interest in pursuing opportunities at other institutions in the sport of Men’s Basketball. “In addition, Chane is currently subject to the American Athletic Conference (AAC) intra-conference transfer policy for the 2013-14 academic year.”
Adam Zagoria reports that Arizona State, Northwestern, Utah, Delaware, Oregon and Iowa State have all reached out and expressed interest in Behanan. He also claims that multiple programs in the AAC and the ACC have reached out, but were told he’d not be allowed to transfer there.
