On Wednesday, the NCAA Division II Committee on infractions announced that the University of Central Oklahoma was placed on three years probation for rules violations by the football program. In addition to the three year probation, there will be an additional reduction of 2 scholarships this academic year, as well as a reduction of 4 scholarships during the 08-09 and 09-10 academic years, and the football team cannot appear on television from Feb. 20, 2008-Feb 19, 2010.
A two-year "show cause" order coach Chuck Langston was imposed as well. Any school wanting to hire Langston for an athletic-related position must appear before the infractions committee to determine whether his duties should be limited.
