NSU tennis put on probation


Probation and penalties

Northeastern State's tennis program was put on probation for rules violations under former head coach Ron Cox. The university also had to pay a fine of $5,000 after it was discovered that Cox provided athletes with at least a combined $1,300, in addition to meals and transportation. He also used student-athletes to assist during the recruiting process.

While probation does not mean a banishment from postseason play, NSU must comply with specific guidelines set forth by the NCAA:

- NSU must put the information regarding this case on the institution's website.

- NSU must include the information in any sort of media guide or recruiting material.

- NSU have a report in September that provides the steps that it's taking to ensure that another incident doesn't occur again.

Probation also did not limit any future recruiting by NSU and there were no scholarship reductions. It also does not impact any additional sports at NSU.
