Missouri dismisses QB Maty Mauk
Maty Mauk’s time at Mizzou is over.
The team announced on Thursday that the troubled quarterback has been permanently dismissed from the Tigers.
New Tigers coach Barry Odom released a statement, which says the decision was made due to Mauk “violating team rules in recent weeks.”
That’s followed up by a passage that reads: “As for the video appearing on social media this week, it is concerning, but we believe it is from a long time ago. However, Mauk’s failure to live up to expectations in recent weeks was the reason for this decision.”
Here’s the statement in full, posted on Twitter by Tod Palmer of The Kansas City Star:

Odom suspended the former starting quarterback indefinitely after a video surfaced online late Monday night that shows someone that looks like Mauk snorting a line of white powder.
According to Palmer, Mauk’s latest suspension was the third that he served within the last four months.
