According to a source, UConn made about 30,000 phone calls from 2005-2009, and the NCAA has deemed about 30 of them to be impermissable. The program, this source claims, has been assured that it will not be banned from any postseason play for the indiscretions. The likely punishments: recruiting restrictions (one less assistant coach on the road, etc.) and perhaps a scholarship.
Also, it seems at least one of the assistants (Patrick Sellers) was simply caught in some inconsistencies in his interviews with the NCAA.
That's what we've been told so far. More to come ...
