According to ESPN's Andy Katz, UConn basketball has decided to part ways with two of its basketball assistants in response to a report last year that hinted at recruiting violations, and could end with self-imposed sanctions or, possibly, penalties from the NCAA. From Katz:
Connecticut said Thursday night it would hold a 10 a.m. news conference on Friday to announce an update on the NCAA investigation of its men's basketball program. The school will release its official notice of allegations that stem from alleged recruiting violations detailed in a Yahoo!Sports report in March of 2009.
Assistant coaches Pat Sellers and director of basketball operations Beau Archibald have resigned, according to multiple sources.
Sellers had been with the Huskies for six seasons, the latter three on the road recruiting. Archibald, a former player, had been on staff for three seasons.
Over at SB Nation's UConn blog, the reactions have been measured, as nothing's official. "I'm going to hold off from saying too much until the press conference tomorrow," writes Andrew Porter, "but the two resignations certainly do not bode well for UConn."
