Michigan State Suspends Football Coach Amid Sexual Harassment Investigation

From A Washington Post story by Wali Khan headlined “Michigan State suspends Mel Tucker amid sexual harassment investigation”:

Michigan State football coach Mel Tucker was suspended without pay Sunday, hours after USA Today revealed the school is investigating a sexual harassment claim made against him.

As outlined in a USA Today story published early Sunday morning, Brenda Tracy, a sexual assault prevention activist, accused Tucker of making sexually explicit comments and masturbating during a phone call as she sat frozen, unable to respond, in April 2022. According to a report submitted to the school by an external investigator, Tucker claimed their relationship was “mutually consensual and intimate,” the newspaper reported.
