Central Florida receives a one-year postseason ban in college football and basketball
The NCAA has handed Central Florida a one-year postseason ban in college football and basketball due to the relationship between several of their coaches and sports agency representative Ken Caldwell, who acted as a middle man between recruits and agents while acting as a representative of the university and pushing recruits towards UCF.
Caldwell has connections to professional agents and is also a twice-convicted criminal. In August 2011 a New York Times story revealed many of the issues that ultimately led to Central Florida's sanctions.
The NCAA began investigating the University last August and UCF athletic director Keith Tribble resigned in November after being accused of providing misleading information.
In February, UCF notified the NCAA of several self-imposed penalties, none of which included postseason bans.
Because of the postseason ban, senior basketball star Keith Clanton can now transfer without sitting out a season. He averaged 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds per game last season. UCF was expected to compete for a Conference USA title and a postseason berth in football and basketball next season in 2012-13.
