Texas quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks have been suspended and sent home a day before the Valero Alamo Bowl for breaking team rules, a source within the school’s administration told ESPN.com Friday.
McCoy, the brother of current NFL quarterback and former Longhorn Colt McCoy, started one game this season and five games last season. Hicks was a starter who has missed most of the Longhorns’ season due to a hip injury.
Texas coach Mack Brown, speaking at a Friday afternoon news conference, did not identify the players or say which rules had been broken. The Longhorns play Oregon State on Saturday.
On Friday morning, KENS-TV in San Antonio quoted San Antonio police as saying that two Texas players were being investigated regarding sexual assault allegations.
No charges have been filed. A copy of a police report emailed to ESPN.com states the alleged incident occurred Friday from 2 to 2:40 a.m. All names beyond the officers involved have been redacted.
“No arrests have been made. As far as the investigation goes, it is still being currently investigated,” Matthew Porter of the San Antonio police told ESPN.com. “There is no timetable for the investigation” to be handed over to the district attorney.
Brown said he would meet with the team later in the day to explain the situation, and “then you move forward. You have policies that you go by.”
