And this time, we think they mean it.
According to the San Antonio Express-News, Texas football players Case McCoy and Jordan Hicks will not be charged following a San Antonio Police Department investigation into an alleged sexual assault. The alleged assault took place the day before the Longhorns’ appearance in the Alamo Bowl.
The decision to close the case comes two weeks after the lawyers for both players publicly proclaimed it to be closed, while the SAPD stated a short time later the case was still open and active.
The quarterback McCoy and linebacker Hicks were both suspended for the bowl game and sent home after the SAPD confirmed two UT football players were the subject of an investigation. In mid-January, head coach Mack Brown announced that both had been reinstated to the team.
