The NCAA is giving Connecticut more time
to respond to allegations that the school's basketball program
committed eight major rules violations.

The university was expected to respond by Aug. 20, but says the
deadline is now Sept. 3. The school says the extension was based on
requests by the coaches cited in the allegations of May 21. UConn
does not say which coaches asked for more time.

Former assistants Beau Archibald and Patrick Sellers resigned
amid accusations that they lied to investigators, who found
hundreds of improper calls and texts from UConn staff to recruits.

Coach Jim Calhoun also is cited in the NCAA report for failing
to promote an atmosphere of compliance.
