Texas OC Major Applewhite had "inappropriate relationship" with Texas student in 2009.

Texas offensive coordinator Major Applewhite has admitted that he had an "inappropriate relationship" with a University of Texas student around the time of the 2009 Fiesta Bowl. Applewhite was the Longhorns' running backs coach at the time.

''It was a one-time occurrence and was a personal matter,'' Applewhite said. ''Shortly after it occurred, I discussed the situation with DeLoss Dodds. I was upfront and took full responsibility for my actions. This is and was resolved by the university four years ago. Through counsel, I have worked with my wife and the incident is behind us.''

Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds says Applewhite was disciplined for the event with a pay freeze and ordered to undergo counseling.
