How did player KU banished for alleged sexual assaults make it onto another D-1 team? New information reveals possibilities

Transfer school has since added safeguards; KU says student was allowed to withdraw in lieu of expulsion but that it’s not responsible for him joining new team

A University of Kansas football player who KU kicked off campus for allegedly sexually assaulting two women followed his former coach to another NCAA Division I football team. It appears that happened without the knowledge of the new school’s top athletics officials, though it’s unclear exactly what — if any — university policy lapses enabled it. In new court filings, KU says its actions aren’t to blame for the banished player’s ability to join the other school’s team. The school the player transferred to has since kicked him off the team, disciplined the coach and changed admission procedures to prevent something similar from happening again.
