AUSTIN (KXAN) - University of Texas football players Jordan Hicks and Case McCoy have been reinstated to the team.
The players had been suspended for violating unspecified team rules after an investigation was launched by San Antonio police for allegations of sexual assault involving two Texas players which were never specifically named.
Mack Brown issued a statement Sunday evening saying, "Jordan Hicks and Case McCoy have rejoined the team. Obviously when you break team rules there's a certain amount of trust that has been broken, and that will be addressed with further discipline. That discipline will be handled within the team."
