Michigan State terminates football coach Mel Tucker

Michigan State Football head coach Mel Tucker spoke Tuesday afternoon amid sexual assault allegations filed against him last week. 

CNN reported Tucker was on active suspension following the reported allegations, but believes the university was aware of his behavior before leaking to the press.

“The investigation is designed to determine if I violated policy. I did not,” Tucker wrote in a statement.

Tucker’s termination notice states “the above-described undisputed facts provide multiple grounds for termination under the Agreement’s Early Termination Provision.”

Michigan State University will continue to investigate this as a “Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct” policy and Title IX case.

Johnny Mims declined to mute his band despite instructions from law enforcement officers, according to NBC News.

The dispute with local police led to the arrest of Mims on school grounds.

When asked to leave the stadium Mims said, “We’re fixing to go. This is our last song.” 

Mims’ lawyer said he believes the arrest is a direct “abuse of power and a clear violation of our client.”
