Ex-Texas Christian Coach Punished by NCAA

Texas Christian University and a former assistant men's basketball coach there on Tuesday became the latest parties in college sports to be punished by the National Collegiate Athletic Association for their roles in a 2017 bribery scandal involving dozens of colleges, coaches and sports agents and representatives.

The NCAA's Division I Committee on Infractions ruled Tuesday that the former TCU coach had violated the association's rules against unethical conduct when he accepted money in exchange for agreeing to refer college players to a sports agency as potential clients.

The NCAA panel will require the coach to seek approval from it if he seeks employment at an NCAA member institution within the next five years. The committee also accepted TCU's self-imposed penalty of a fine of $5,000 plus 1 percent of the basketball program's revenues.
