UConn self-imposes penalties for violations under Kevin Ollie

ESPN

The University of Connecticut has announced it is self-imposing penalties, including the loss of a scholarship for the 2019-20 season, for violations of NCAA rules under former basketball coach Kevin Ollie.

The school said it also will restrict its recruiting by limiting official and unofficial visits and cutting the number of recruiting days this year from 130 to 126. The school also plans to pay a $5,000 fine.

UConn fired Ollie after a 14-18 season a year ago, citing numerous NCAA violations.

The NCAA investigated and sent the school a notice of allegations in September, which detailed alleged unethical conduct by Ollie for allegedly providing false or misleading information about video calls to a recruit from two former UConn stars, Hall of Famer Ray Allen and San Antonio Spurs guard Rudy Gay.
