CFB Notebook: Coach reprimanded, fined, reinstated
| 2 weeks ago

Four days after being placed on administrative leave for slapping a player on the helmet, East Tennessee State head coach Randy Sanders was reprimanded, fined and reinstated on Sunday.

Following a review of the March 30 incident, Sanders was fined one week's pay and received the letter of reprimand, according to multiple outlets.

Sanders self-reported the incident after a player intercepted a pass and ran it out of the end zone during practice. Sanders, who was the co-offensive coordinator at Florida State last season, hollered at the player, "That's the dumbest football play I've ever seen! Just take a knee and we win the game!"

The player's response reportedly angered Sanders, who slapped the player on the side of the helmet. The player walked off the practice field and Sanders attempted to apologize to both the player and team.

--Linebacker Jawuan Johnson announced he is transferring from Northern Illinois to TCU.

Johnson made the announcement on his Twitter page after visiting TCU during the weekend.

He told ESPN.com that TCU was his first choice due to the proximity for his family, who resides in Texarkana, Texas, which is approximately 210 miles northeast of Fort Worth.

Johnson will be a graduate transfer for the Horned Frogs. The 5-foot-11, 217-pounder is set to graduate Northern Illinois in May.

Last season, Johnson was a third-team All-MAC selection with 98 tackles and five interceptions, including a 25-yard interception for a touchdown in a 21-17 win over Nebraska on Sept. 16. Eighteen of Johnson's tackles were for loss and he tied for the MAC lead with five forced fumbles.
