UCF review finds football training normal

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A review of the University of Central Florida's football training program has found conditioning activities rigorous "but within the range normal to other Division I football programs."

The report released Friday recommended better communication between the teams' physicians and coaches and said the school should consider hiring an extra athletic trainer for football.

The review was ordered by UCF President John Hitt after the death of receiver Ereck Plancher last spring and the collapse of running back Brandon Davis in December.

Attorney Mike Glazier, a former NCAA investigator, conducted the inquiry.

Plancher died after taking part in the team's "mat drills" during an offseason conditioning workout last March on the UCF campus.

The workout was supervised by Coach George O'Leary and his staff.
