Eastern Kentucky University released the following statement today regarding student-athletes involved in fights with UK football players earlier this year.

“The legal process has run its course and the Eastern Kentucky University Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities is following its prescribed procedure in dealing with the events involving our student-athletes on January 25, 2015. We hold all of our EKU students to very high standards and those who violate these codes of conduct are held accountable.

Given the actions of these student-athletes, these players have been suspended from the EKU Football roster. Their future at the University will be determined pending the decision by personnel within our Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. This type of behavior will not be tolerated.

From this point forward, this is an internal student judicial issue and the University plans to make no further comment. “
