No – the issue is actually two fold –

1. A coach CAN NOT require an athlete to workout or train out of season, and provide consequences if he/she does not. This is why he has been suspended – it is a direct violation of NCAA rules.

2. He pulled an athlete’s name out of the “Official” program guide which included a list of the top 15 times in all events. That swimmer had broken the school record, only later at the NCAAs to have it broken again. The accusation is that he did this because said athlete refused to train over the summer.

– Anybody wonder how much this goes on at other programs?
