Brady Hoke: Josh Furman's status with Michigan football team 'still being evaluated'
Michigan safety Josh Furman was suspended earlier this year and did not participate in the team's spring camp after he was arrested on three misdemeanor charges -- including for domestic violence and assault and battery.
“We were informed of the court’s decision today," head coach Brady Hoke said in a statement. "Josh’s status with our football team is still being evaluated at this time.”
Furman's lawyer, Gerry Mason, told reporters at the courthouse that Michigan has a strict "no assaultive behavior" policy. That is why Furman refused to plead to a lesser charge.
