Jim Calhoun Suspended Three Big East Games

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Before the season, Jim Calhoun knew his recruiting violations had surfaced regarding the recruitment of former guard Nate Miles and would land him in serious trouble with the NCAA.

Coach Calhoun reportedly had too much contact with Miles, exceeding the amount of calls and text imposed by the NCAA.

Not to mention, a former student-manager reportedly paid for many expenses regarding the commitment of Miles.

Instead of banning the UConn Huskies (20-6, 8-6) from the NCAA tournament, like you witness the committee do the USC, the NCAA has decided to suspend Calhoun for three Big East conference games next season.

The Huskies also were deducted scholarships for the next three seasons and placed on a three-year probation period.

The committee also placed a two-year show-cause penalty on former assistant Beau Archibald, who wasn't mentioned in the reports earlier.
