As part of a rookie hazing ritual.  He also had players run 10 to 12 miles while denying them water.  Oh, and he was so down on concussions that players with concussion symptoms would hide them from him.

No, this did not happen in 1962, it happened between 2010 and 2012.

No, he was not coaching UCF at the time, he was coaching the Philadelphia Union professional team.

The other interesting point is that the reason public organizations settle with former players and coaches is sometimes (often?) so that embarrassing items like this don't hit the press.  A few hundred thousand could easily be considered a small price to pay to keep some items from public consumption.
