  • Report: NCAA Found Violations at UConn

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The Wall Street Journal released a lengthy story Wednesday that indicates the following:

    **A source told the paper that NCAA investigators have found violations at the school

    **An NCAA report will be issued “in the near future”

    **Head coach Jim Calhoun has yet to sign his contract extension

    A year ago, Yahoo! Sports chronicled NCAA violations which occurred during UConn’s pursuit of recruit Nate Miles.

    The Tampa Tribune later reported that Josh Nochimson, a former UConn student manager who became a sports agent, paid several thousand dollars for Miles to have surgery in December 2007.

    “Could I have made a mistake? Sure.” Calhoun told Yahoo! Sports during the 2009 NCAA tournament. “The [rules] manual is 508 pages. Someone could’ve made a mistake.”
