Colorado football coach Mike MacIntyre has been ordered to donate $100,000 to domestic violence programs, after his mishandling of allegations that were brought forward against an assistant coach.
Elizabeth Hernandez of the DailyCamera reported the news this week, after the Colorado Board of Regents made its decision.
MacIntyre must make the donation as punishment for not promptly reporting allegations against his ex-assistant Joe Tumpkin. MacIntyre was informed by Tumpkin’s ex-girlfriend about a domestic violence incident and pending restraining order in mid-December, but Tumpkin went on to coach and run the defense in the Alamo Bowl.
The school also claims they were not informed about the allegations until Jan. 6.
Along with MacIntyre donating $100,000 to domestic violence organizations, athletic director Rick George must match that donation and chancellor Phil DiStefano must serve a 10-day suspension.
