Sanders has been suspended with pay while ETSU conducts "an investigation of potential violation of university policy".
East Tennessee State football coach Randy Sanders was suspended by the university after allegedly hitting defensive back Tyree Robison during practice.
According to a report from Johnson City Press' Joe Avento, Sanders' punishment was caused by him striking a player.
We'll post more details as soon as they become available. The paper, citing sources close to the situation, said the alleged incident took place when Robinson "failed to take a knee during a drill". Sanders did coach the team's scrimmage on Saturday, but word of his paid leave came down on Monday. Sanders also worked at Kentucky and Tennessee and has been part of two national championships during his coaching career.
Sanders is less than four months into his tenure as ETSU's head coach. Before accepting the Buccaneers job he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Florida State beginning in 2013. He will not coach in ETSU's spring game Thursday night.
