Mixon is "excluded from all team activities, including being removed from the team roster. With appropriate conditions, he will be permitted to continue as a student, eligible for financial aid."
In a release from the school, athletics director Joe Castiglione and coach Bob Stoops said, “As the university has demonstrated in the past, we are committed to winning the right way. As an example to others, OU sets the highest possible standards for its student athletes, coaches and staff.”
Oklahoma President Dave Boren accepted the recommendation of a year-long suspension from Stoops and Castiglione.
Mixon appeared in court Monday at approximately 1:30 p.m. before being released without bail for charges stemming from an early morning altercation on July 25.
Mixon, a five-star running back and the top-ranked OU signee for its 2014 class, was expected to contribute this season to Oklahoma's inexperienced backfield.
