PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - A Rutgers football player has left the team after alleging that a coach verbally abused him and threatened to head-butt him during a spring study hall session. The player says the assistant then treated him unfairly once the season started.

Jevon Tyree, a redshirt freshman from Somerset, was on scholarship and quit the team last week.

According to the website NJ.com, Tyree says defensive coordinator Dave Cohen used two profane terms in the study hall in front of teammates and an academic adviser, who reported the issue,

The university said in a statement Cohen was reprimanded by head coach Kyle Flood the nest day and apologized. The school denied any physical threat.

This matter comes less than a year after basketball coach Mike Rice was fired for physically and verbally abusing players.
