Yale University and the men’s basketball program has seen its fair share of controversy in recent months, thanks to plenty of speculation and rumors regarding the dismissal of former captain Jack Montague.
Now, there are specific reports regarding Montague’s expulsion from the university.
According to a report from the Yale Daily News, Montague was hit with a formal complaint with the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct in November 2015.
There have been multiple signs around Yale telling the basketball team to “stop supporting a rapist,” but the university has not spoken on specifics of the case. That is because they cannot.
“The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act prohibits educational institutions from releasing a student’s private academic records without the student’s prior written consent,” a spokesperson for Yale said, via Business Insider.
So, while it appears as though Montague was booted from the team because of sexual misconduct, we will have to wait to hear from both sides.
“We have been holding our tongue and waiting,” Montague’s father, Jack, said, “and when we put our story out there, people are going to say, ‘Why was this boy expelled?’”
