NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A law firm's investigation has determined that a former assistant football coach at Rutgers did not bully a former player and there was no retaliation against the player.
The report issued Tuesday also found the university responded appropriately.
Cornerback Jevon Tyree had said defensive coordinator Dave Cohen verbally abused him and threatened to head-butt him last spring. Tyree quit the team Nov. 6. He remains on scholarship for this school year.
The investigation found Cohen did use inappropriate language toward Tyree, but also concluded head coach Kyle Flood took appropriate action within hours of being informed. It noted Flood immediately admonished Cohen and addressed the matter with the entire coaching staff.
