Florida places assistant director of player personnel on leave following arrest, felony charge
This is the time of year that players across the country often find themselves in trouble with the law but behavior of that nature certainly isn’t limited to young men.
The latest example of that comes from Gainesville as Florida has just suspended assistant director of player personnel Otis Yelverton. Alachua County Court records indicate Yelverton remains in custody at this time and is being charged with aggravated stalking/cyberstalking. This charge is a third-degree felony in the state of Florida.
According to the police report obtained by Rivals, Yelverton threatened to blow up his ex-girlfriend’s car on a voicemail and either called, texted or messaged on Facebook 40 times after their breakup.
After learning of Yelverton’s recent arrest, Florida has quickly taken action against him and officially put him on leave. This news was first reported by Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun.
Dan Mullen brought Yelverton with him when he left Mississippi State for Florida.
