Florida International University football coach Ron Turner is apologizing for the conduct of some players who used a public outdoor shower after a beach workout Friday and disrobed in public.

The incident took place on Crandon Park Beach in Key Biscayne, about 20 miles east of FIU's main campus. Miami-Dade Police say they were called to investigate reports that a group of players were unclothed in view of other beachgoers.

No charges were filed, and police say none are expected. Turner says some players rinsed off at the public showers "and a few of them made a poor decision and changed their clothes in public."

The team was at the beach for a cookout commemorating the end of preseason conditioning. The school's investigation will continue.
