Following their suspension from the Alamo Bowl for violating team rules, Texas quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks have been reinstated to the team, per a release from Longhorns coach Mack Brown Sunday night.
“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.”
McCoy and Hicks were sent home Dec. 28 by Brown, the same day the San Antonio Police said two unnamed Longhorn players were at the center of an alleged sexual assault investigation.
Hicks’ attorney, Perry Minton, said last week that no charges have been filed against Hicks or McCoy in the matter. Minton also said he was informed that the case was closed, although the SAPD stated that the case is, in fact, ongoing.
McCoy primarily served as the Longhorns’ backup QB and Hicks spent most of the season sidelined with a groin injury.
