BREAKING NEWS: NSU tennis put on probation

Northeastern State University was sanctioned by the NCAA on Wednesday after rules violations were discovered. The sanctions were levied upon NSU after the NCAA Division II Committee on Infractions found that a former women's tennis coach provided several players with a combined $1,300 while also paying for academic fees and meals.

"The situation is highly regrettable," said Tony Duckworth, NSU's director of athletics.

"This doesn't reflect the image and the values of our university. The circumstances on this case are highly unusual, and we're going to try to prevent something like this from happening again."

NSU's tennis program was put on probation for one year, and the university was fined $5,000. Also, former NSU tennis coach Ron Cox — who retired late in 2012 — must attend ethics training if he coaches at another NCAA institution before July 2, 2015.

The terms were agreed to by the NCAA, Cox and NSU.
