Punishment handed down for bowl brawl

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - 12 Tiger football players face disciplinary measures for their roles in the post-game brawl following Memphis's double overtime win in last month's Miami Beach Bowl.


Punishment includes, but is not limited to, suspensions from practices and scrimmages on up to two full regular season games, though which players will be suspended from games won't be announced until the start of the 2015 season.

The players involved must attend anger management counseling and do community service, plus face any other punishments at the discretion of head coach Justin Fuente.

With the internal investigation complete, Tigers Athletic Director Tom Bowen released a statement saying the University of Memphis holds its athletes to the highest standards of sportsmanship and personal conduct, and the actions of a few players in Miami were completely unacceptable.
Memphis will hold a conference call with BYU where formal apologies will be extended.

BYU has not released any sanctions on its players.
