Central Florida will be ineligible for the postseason in college football and basketball, sanctions that were to be handed down by the NCAA for recruiting violations Tuesday.

UCF already self-imposed penalties related to the recruiting practices that involved the use of an agent with a criminal background helping to push players to Orlando. The self-imposed violations included three years of probation, vacating all basketball victories for three seasons -- between 2008 and 2011 -- and giving up one basketball scholarship.

Central Florida transitions to the Big East in 2013, but its basketball program was considered an NCAA Tournament contender and legitimate threat to powerhouse Memphis in Conference USA in 2012-13.
