Rutgers releases statement on Jevon Tyree

Rutgers just released a statement on the recent situation regarding Jevon Tyree and his leaving the team.

That statement is as follows:

The situation between Jevon Tyree and Dave Cohen took place in the spring and was dealt with immediately.

Cohen apologized the following day for his participation in the escalation of banter, which resulted in the use of inappropriate language. Kyle Flood reprimanded Cohen and addressed the situation immediately with the entire coaching staff.

This was an isolated incident. At no time was there any threat of physical violence, which was verified by an academic counselor, who was present in the room.

Six months later, Tyree's father contacted Director of Athletics Julie Hermann to discuss Jevon's role on the team and how coaching decisions were made. During the conversation with Hermann, Tyree's father reintroduced the March situation.

Since the situation occurred prior to Hermann's arrival, she immediately contacted Flood, who apprised her of the situation and how it was addressed.

To be sure, Flood initiated an additional meeting with Tyree and his parents to address their concerns and his future with the team. The following morning, September 17, Tyree informed Flood of his intention to remain with the program.

Hermann spoke to Tyree's father following the meeting with Flood and confirmed that the matter was resolved to his satisfaction.

Tyree voluntarily left the football program November 6.
