Players, Coaches Meet on MSU Campus This Morning

Posted: Updated:

The Maverick football team and coaches came together this morning on MSU's campus following yesterday's refusal by the players to practice.

This morning's meeting was scheduled to start at seven at Myer's Field House.

You are looking at video of players arriving early this morning.

Yesterday was supposed to be coach Todd Hoffner's first opportunity to be back on the practice field with the team.

Coach Hoffner met with athletic director Kevin Buisman and associate head coach Aaron Keen on the sidelines while they waited for the players to take the field.

They did but were not in their uniforms; instead gathering just inside the gate where junior Samuel Thomson read a statement no one was expecting to hear...

After that all parties went indoors, school officials told us that athletics director Kevin Buisman, along with coach keen and coach Hoffner met with the team.

Nothing was resolved, and as we saw they had another meeting this morning.

KEYC News 12's Ashley Hanley has been following the events since yesterday and is on campus this morning.

We will have more coming up on KEYC News 12 Midday.
