LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California has fired baseball coach Frank Cruz for violating NCAA rules regarding limits on practice time and organized team activities.

Trojans athletic director Pat Haden announced Wednesday that Cruz has been dismissed and that the school has self-imposed a reduction in the number of practice hours for the baseball team this season and next.

USC has alerted the NCAA and Pac-12 of the infraction and the university-imposed actions.

Cruz was 48-63 in two seasons with the Trojans.

Associate head coach Dan Hubbs, a former Trojans pitcher in his second season as a coach with USC, has been promoted to head coach.
