Texas players McCoy, Hicks rejoin football team after assault allegation
AUSTIN, Texas – Two Texas football players suspended before the Alamo Bowl amid a sexual assault allegation have rejoined the team.
Coach Mack Brown said late Sunday that quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks are back.
McCoy and Hicks were suspended a day before the Dec. 29 Alamo Bowl. A police report says a 21-year-old woman told investigators she had been drinking alcohol and was assaulted after inviting two men to her San Antonio hotel room. An attorney for Hicks says the incident was consensual.
Lawyers for the players last week said police told them the case would no longer be pursued. Police have said the investigation continues.
Texas beat Oregon State 31-27 in the Alamo Bowl.
