Mike Alden held a press conference this afternoon to announce the disciplinary actions which have been taken against Coach Pinkel for his "poor judgement" in this case. Coach Pinkel has been suspended without pay from today until Thanksgiving Day. He will not be present for the Texas Tech game.
Coach Steckel will act as head coach on Saturday, when Missouri hosts Texas Tech.
In addition, Coach Pinkel will donate an additional week's pay to the University Wellness Center, will forfeit performance and bowl bonuses, and will complete 50 hours of community service.
Coach Pinkel is not on the job as of 2:30 today, and will be back on the job next Thursday morning.
