University of Michigan Football Staffer Alex Yood Released


The University of Michigan has officially confirmed that it has severed ties with football staffer Alex Yood following a video that surfaced in September in which he was confronted over allegations of soliciting an encounter with a 13-year-old girl. The news of Yood's termination was initially reported by 247 Sports and later confirmed in a statement by Michigan's athletics department to the Daily Mail. "Alex Yood is no longer part of the athletic department," the statement read. "An issue was brought to our attention, and we immediately moved to handle the matter with our HR department. We are unable to comment further regarding this employment matter." National Finals Rodeo
