AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas assistant football coach Major Applewhite has acknowledged he was disciplined by the school for having an inappropriate relationship with a student at the 2009 Fiesta Bowl.
In separate statements released Friday night, Applewhite and athletic director DeLoss Dodds said Applewhite had his pay frozen for a year and was ordered to undergo counseling. Applewhite also was warned that a repeat offense would have more serious consequences.
In his statement, Applewhite said he was embarrassed by the incident. Neither Applewhite or the school released further details.
Dodds called the incident something that happened between consenting adults and considered it resolved.
Texas women's track coach Bev Kearney resigned in January as the school was in the process of firing her for having a relationship with one of her athletes in 2002.
