Football: CHSAA places Mullen on probation, but no postseason ban

Mullen High School was placed on a one-year probation Friday, but the state’s high school sports organizing body says it is satisfied the private school corrected problems that existed institutionally.

The Colorado High School Activities Association finished its investigation into self-reported violations by Mullen and though the school will be on probation, it isn’t on restriction — which would have prevented its football team from playing in the postseason.

CHSAA said it wouldn’t make details of Mullen’s report public. This summer, though, sources told The Denver Post that the report alleged violations including contact with youth football players by an assistant coach, unauthorized fundraising, and misrepresenting parents’ responsibility for the school’s annual tuition.
