FAU reinstates QB Chris Robison from suspension after sexual battery accusations

Leave a comment

FAU has fully reinstated quarterback Chris Robison following an internal investigation amid allegations of sexual battery. Robison was suspended by FAU head coach Lane Kiffin in March. Word of the internal investigation was reported in May.

“Chris Robison is currently able to participate in football-related team activities,” a statement from FAU regarding Robison’s status read Friday, according to The Palm Beach Post.

Robison was investigated after being accused of sexual battery by a female student. However, that same female student later told police at FAU her encounter with Robison in question was consensual, thus no charges were pressed against the Owls quarterback.

Robison transferred to FAU in 2017 (with former Auburn quarterback John Franklin III) after his dismissal from Oklahoma. Robison was given a prior suspension by Kiffin in 2018 for an unspecified violation of team rules.
