Mizzou QB Dismissed After Viral Twitter Video

Just days after a Twitter video was released of Maty Mauk snorting a line of white, powder-like substance, the University of Missouri has dismissed its starting quarterback.

Maty Mauk had been suspended three times in four months after a short Twitter video appears to show him snorting a line of white, powder-like substance. Mauk was suspended in September for violation of team rules and again in November for undisclosed disciplinary reasons. 

Now, the University of Missouri football program has had enough, dismissing Mauk from the team.

“I met with Maty Mauk this morning and informed him of my decision to permanently dismiss him from the football program,” Head Coach Barry Odom said in a statement. “When I met with Maty back in December, I wanted to give him an opportunity for a fresh start, but I also made it very clear what our expectations would be moving forward. After gathering information and speaking with a number of individuals this week, it is clear Mauk has failed to live up to those expectations by violating team rules in recent weeks.”
