Last month, Howard coach Ron Prince was accused of being verbally abusive toward players, which led to many players transferring (including Cam Newton’s younger brother, Caylin).

Now, he has reportedly been placed on administrative leave as the school investigates.

Per The HBCU Digest, Howard AD Kery Davis released the following statement about the investigation:

“Howard University is committed to completing our internal investigation of the allegations involving concerns about the football program. As a result of our continuing investigation, the University has decided ¬†to place Head Football Coach Ron Prince on administrative leave effective immediately. Director of Football Operations Aaron Kelton will serve as the interim coach until further notice. Howard ¬†University is committed to ensuring our athletic programs reflect Howard’s core mission and values and to ensuring the well-being and success of all student athletes.”

Howard is only 1-8 this season under Prince’s leadership. We’ll have to see whether he retains his job after this investigation.
