Rob Tucker, a junior tight end with the Wisconsin football team, has been suspended indefinitely after he was involved in an altercation in Madison Saturday night, head coach Barry Alvarez announced.
"In light of recent events involving members of our football team, my staff and I have made extra efforts to emphasize to our players the importance of appropriate off-the-field conduct," Alvarez said. "I spoke with Rob and he apologized for not adhering to our recent re-emphasis on proper conduct. Our players understand the standards they are expected to follow, particularly with the importance we have placed on suitable behavior."
"I didn't behave in the way the coaching staff has instructed us to," Tucker said. "I accept Coach Alvarez's suspension and I want to apologize to my teammates and coaches for causing this distraction."
