Florida WR Antonio Callaway found not responsible in Title IX hearing

Florida Gators wide receiver Antonio Callaway has been cleared following Title IX sexual assault investigation by the university.

Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times was first to report the news.

Callaway was initially suspended from the program when there was a code of conduct complaint filed against him. The suspension was altered over the summer which allowed him to rejoin the team for fall camp.

Now that he was found not responsible in the hearing, he is eligible to play for the team and remain at the school.

“It wasn’t exactly a news flash that Mr. Callaway was going to be found not responsible,” Clune said. “It just seems like this whole situation, ever since we found out they were having a booster hear the case, is a disgrace, and it’s a disservice to everybody who is involved in this process.”

Callaway, who is one of the most explosive offensive weapons for the Gators, recorded 35 catches for 678 yards — a freshman record — and four touchdowns as a freshman last season.

However, his most impressive statistic was his 1,211 all-purpose yards which led the team.

Florida is set to open its 2016 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 3 against UMass at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.
