UTEP athletics punished over football, softball violations

EL PASO, Texas (AP) UTEP football coach Dana Dimel and former softball coach Tobin Echo-Hawk received one-year show-cause restrictions and the athletic department was placed on a year's probation Tuesday over NCAA violations in both programs.

The NCAA said the football team exceeded limits on the size of the coaching staff for two years by allowing offensive and defensive quality control coaches to provide instruction.

Echo-Hawk allowed graduate assistants to provide instruction during extra workout sessions as part of violations of limits on the size of the coaching staff and daily and weekly limits on the number of hours athletes are allowed to practice, according to the NCAA. The former coach also didn't give her players a mandatory day off every week.
