1 of 2 Husker football players accused of sexual assault appeals suspension, other plans to appeal – Omaha World-Herald

One of two Nebraska football players accused of sexual misconduct has appealed a decision by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to suspend them for 2½ years.

The other player’s attorney said an appeal will be filed Tuesday afternoon. 

An investigation conducted by UNL’s Title IX office sided with a woman who said she was sexually assaulted by Andre Hunt and Katerian LeGrone, ESPN has reported. 

Attorneys for both men have said their clients have done nothing wrong. 

Carlos Monzon, Hunt’s attorney, said Tuesday morning that an appeal has been filed on behalf of Hunt. Kaz Long, who represents LeGrone, said LeGrone’s appeal will be filed by Tuesday afternoon. The 2½-year suspensions address the men’s status as UNL students.

Hunt and LeGrone have entered the NCAA
