UConn Assistants Resign Amid NCAA Probe

University of Connecticut assistant coach Patrick Sellers and director of basketball operations Beau Archibald have resigned from their positions at UConn in the wake of the NCAA’s investigation of rules violations in connection with the recruitment of one-time Husky Nate Miles.  UConn has planned a press conference today, at 10 am in Gampel Pavilion, to discuss the NCAA’s investigation. 

Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant has the story on what appears to be the beginning of the fallout from the NCAA’s investigation:

UConn is expected to reveal the NCAA’s notice of allegations that indicates the NCAA enforcement staff believes that violations have occurred. The notice of allegations, in effect, notifies all involved parties of the alleged violations of NCAA rules uncovered during the inquiry.

The university has 90 days to respond to allegations made by the NCAA – at which time it is also likely [it] would recommend self-imposed sanctions. Eventually, there will be a hearing before the committee on infractions.

News of the NCAA’s investigation of UConn has been scarce since Yahoo!
