Oklahoma's football team has been required
to give players a week off from athletic training during the
offseason after reporting a series of secondary NCAA rules
violations related to offseason workouts.
The Sooners reported to the NCAA that four assistant coaches had
improperly questioned players about their lack of participation in
voluntary offseason workouts, and that some players had been
working out more than the allowed eight hours per week.
The violations were included in documents released to The
Associated Press on Tuesday following an open records request.
Other violations included a handful of self-reported
impermissible text messages and phone calls by assistant coaches to
recruits and their fathers.
