Michigan State has suspended three student-athletes linked to the football program while the school investigates sexual assault allegations.
No criminal charges have been filed, but the school said it is reviewing both the allegations and the response of a staff member following a sexual assault complaint made in late January.
“Sexual assault is unacceptable, and members of MSU Athletics who fail to uphold our standards for creating a culture that is safe, supportive, and responsive to those affected by it will be held accountable,” athletic director Mark Hollis said in a statement on Thursday. “My expectation of all members of the department is full and complete cooperation with all investigations.”
The school has not released the name of the players suspended or the staff members involved.
