    "It is not a surprise that the Notice of Allegations mimics the University of Connecticut's position in the arbitration as there is every reason to believe that the NCAA would support its member," Jacques Parenteau, Ollie's attorney, said in a statement. "However, an allegation is not proof of anything, it's just an allegation. When the time comes to prove what actually happened, we will show that Coach Ollie did nothing to justify UConn's failure to pay him the money that is due him by contract."

      In addition to reducing scholarships next season from 13 to 12, the school said it will do the following: enforce a one-week ban on unofficial visits during the 2018-2019 academic year; enforce a one-week ban on recruiting communications during the current academic year; reduce by one the number of allowable official visits this year; reduce from 130 to 126 the number of allowable recruiting days; pay a $5,000 fine to the NCAA; and prohibit student-managers from attending allowable pickup games involving team members.

        Former UConn men’s basketball coach Kevin Ollie has won his arbitration case against the school and is due $11.2 million within the next 10 business days. He was fired in March 2018 by UConn, which cited just cause for the move as his program was struggling and NCAA violations were later revealed. But the arbitrator concluded that UConn should have waited the 16 months it took for the NCAA proceedings to conclude before terminating Ollie, according to a UConn statement.
