The University of Texas Board of Regents announced Sunday that it would conduct a review of policies about inappropriate relationships between employees and students, USA Today reported. The announcement came after the board met and took no public action against Major Applewhite, an assistant football coach at the Austin campus who was advised to get counseling and who had a one-year salary freeze imposed because of a one-time consensual relationship with a student. The punishment is receiving scrutiny because of the recent ouster of Bev Kearney as track and field coach, also at Austin. She said she was forced out because of a consensual relationship she had with a student. Kearney has charged that the university took a harder line with her than it did with male coaches.
