Manhattan hiring Louisville assistant

Louisville assistant Steve Masiello has reached an agreement in principle to become Manhattan's next head coach, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com on Sunday.

An official announcement is expected Monday.

Masiello is a former Manhattan assistant with New York roots and strong ties to the New York recruiting scene. The 33 year old recruited multiple New York-area players for Louisville -- among them Samardo Samuels, Earl Clark, Edgar Sosa, Francisco Garcia and Derrick Caracter.

Masiello replaces Barry "Slice" Rohrssen.
