After a 15 month investigation by the NCAA and the resignation of assistant coach Patrick Sellers and director of basketball operations Beau Archibald, word now comes that the UConn men’s basketball team has been hit with 8 violations. No word yet on the possible punishments.
STORRS, Conn.(AP)—The University of Connecticut says the NCAA has found eight violations in the school’s men’s basketball program.
The alleged violations include improper phone calls and text messages to recruits, and giving recruits improper benefits. Coach Jim Calhoun was cited Friday for failing to “promote an atmosphere of compliance.”
UConn as an institution was cited for not adequately monitoring “the conduct and administration of the men’s basketball staff in the areas of: telephone records, representatives of the institution’s athletics interests; and, complimentary admissions or discretionary tickets.”
Documents released by the school showed pages and pages of phone and text message correspondence between Nochimson and UConn coaches Calhoun, Tom Moore, who is now head coach at Quinnipiac, and Sellers.
