Cox was cited for a failure to promote an atmosphere of compliance with NCAA rules and for unethical conduct. He did not respond to a request for comment.

The NCAA said the trouble in the women's tennis program was the school's first major infractions case.

Cox retired Nov. 1, 2012. The school resumed its tennis program last spring and advanced to the Division II playoffs after having its players' eligibility restored, Duckworth said.

The NCAA did not order the athletes to repay the coach for the improper benefits but as part of their reinstatement process they were directed to make an equivalent donation to charity.
