M officials said Thursday that coach Dennis Franchione will be admonished for a secretive for-pay newsletter sent to boosters and that the school will report violations related to the newsletter to the NCAA.
The school ordered the coach to shut down his Web site - CoachFran.com - and will issue a ``letter of admonishment.''
About two weeks ago, the school hired a consulting firm to investigate after Franchione admitted he provided the information in a newsletter called the ``VIP Connection.''
M.'' Franchione's longtime personal assistant, Mike McKenzie, actually wrote the e-mails.
The school pointed out three areas where possible violations occurred:
M income generated through his Web site or from the VIP Connection. The school said Franchione thought he did not have to report the income until he actually received the proceeds that exceeded expenses incurred for maintaining the Web site.
-The VIP Connection occasionally contained information about prospective student-athletes. The NCAA prohibits a school from commenting publicly on recruits until they sign letters of intent.
-The school suggested that Franchione violated Big 12 standards of sportsmanship.
