HARTFORD, CONN. (AP) - 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.
