Mark Dantonio Comments on the Legal Charges:
Hondo S. Carpenter
Statement from Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio:
â€œWe were notified about an alleged incident back in late April, and this week charges were filed. We have closely monitored this situation for over six months. Throughout this process, our student-athletes have been cooperative with the authorities, and they have maintained their innocence to all parties involved. In fairness to the student-athletes alleged to have been involved in the incident, the prudent decision is to allow the legal process to continue to run its full course and for the truth to be determined."
â€œThese student-athletes will remain on the roster and continue to have the opportunity to play in games. We take allegations of this nature very seriously, and we will not discuss this issue any further until thereâ€™s a legal resolution.â€
