JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — East Tennessee State coach Randy Sanders will receive a letter of reprimand and will lose one week's pay after slapping a player's helmet during a practice last week.

According to the incident report, Sanders slapped the player's helmet while scolding him "for a poor play near the end of practice." Carter said Sanders informed him of the incident after the practice.
