Jim Calhoun, athletic director Jeff Hathaway and interim-President Philip Austin all released responses to the NCAA's ruling from earlier today. They're all brief and do not give out much information, which is to be expected.
I am very disappointed with the NCAA's decision in this case. My lawyer and I are evaluating my options and will make a decision which way to proceed.
In the meantime, I will not make any further statements about the case as our program prepares for what I hope will be an exciting and successful postseason.
This is Hathaway:
We have worked closely with the NCAA from the time we learned of the allegations.
When we submitted our response to the NCAA Committee on Infractions acknowledging violations in the men's basketball program, we immediately self-imposed a series of penalties and corrective measures that are included as part of the NCAA Committee on Infractions report. We are disappointed that the Committee determined that additional penalties needed to be imposed.
We value the principles of the NCAA and fully recommit ourselves to running a program of impeccable integrity.
And here is Austin:
This is deeply disappointing to the UConn community. Let me be very clear, we will comply fully with the NCAA's sanctions and work with great resolve to restore the luster to our men's basketball program.
