UConn: Ollie fired for impermissible contact, workouts

STORRS, Conn. (AP) The University of Connecticut fired men's basketball coach Kevin Ollie after finding NCAA violations that included improper training sessions and improper contact with recruits by Ollie and former UConn star Ray Allen, according to documents released by the school.

The violations are laid out in more than 1,300 pages of emails, transcripts and contracts given to The Associated Press and other media organizations who filed Freedom of Information requests with the school after Ollie was fired in March. They were released this week after UConn President Susan Herbst upheld the firing decision, a process that now heads to arbitration.

The NCAA is investigating UConn for potential violations, but has not issued a finding.
