April 1999: The UConn men's basketball team wins the national title for the first time, defeating Duke in the championship game. Josh Nochimson, whom coach Jim Calhoun would later thank in his book "Dare To Dream," is on the bench as a student manager.

November 1999: Informed of Nochimson's intention to become an agent, then-compliance officer Bill Shultz writes a letter to Calhoun and then-assistant athletic director Jeff Hathaway, warning that UConn must apply all standard agent rules to Nochimson, despite any pre-existing relationship he might have with members of the team or staff and to "avoid even the appearance of any impropriety."

November 2006: Nate Miles, a 6-foot-7 guard/forward from Toledo, Ohio, makes an oral commitment to attend UConn.

October 2008: Miles, a freshman, is expelled after violating a restraining order and allegations of abusing a female student. He never plays for UConn.

March 2009: Yahoo! Sports reports that UConn developed an improper relationship with an agent and also broke other rules in its recruitment of Miles.

January 2010: The NCAA sends a notice of inquiry, informing UConn that it has begun an investigation into the men's basketball program.

May 2010: UConn receives a notice of allegations from the NCAA, which cites eight major recruiting violations, including impermissible gifts provided by a representative of the school's athletic interests. Calhoun is charged with failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance.

Sept. 3, 2010: UConn must respond to the charges and self-impose sanctions.

Oct. 15, 2010: Jim Calhoun, Jeff Hathaway and other UConn representatives appear before the NCAA's committee on infractions in Indianapolis.

Feb. 22, 2011: NCAA announces sanctions against UConn.
