Texas football players Case McCoy and Jordan Hicks may still continue to be investigated for an alleged sexual assault at a hotel in San Antonio, but the two have been cleared to rejoin the Longhorns football team.
ESPN Dallas is reporting that Texas head coach Mack Brown recently reinstated the two players.
“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,” Brown said in a statement. “That discipline will be handled within the team.”
The Senior McCoy and Junior Hicks were both suspended the day before the Alamo Bowl for missing curfew. In the midst of the missed curfew, the two were accused of raping a 21-year-old Texas Tech student that partied with the players before allegedly inviting them back to her Holiday Inn hotel room.
Police released a statement emphasizing that the close is still open.
“In light of the media inquiries into the allegation of a sexual assault that took place in the early morning hours on December 28, 2012, in the downtown area, the San Antonio Police Department’s SVU (Special Victims Unit) is still reviewing the case,” police officials said in a released statement.
