Quarterback Maty Mauk is no longer a Missouri Tiger. He was dismissed from the MU football team Thursday after meeting with new coach Barry Odom.
“I met with Maty Mauk this morning and informed him of my decision to permanently dismiss him from the football program,” Odom said in a release from the athletic department that announced Mauk’s dismissal. “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 Maty has failed to live up to those expectations by violating team rules in recent weeks.
“As for the video appearing on social media this week, it is concerning, but we believe it is from a long time ago. However, Maty’s failure to live up to expectations in recent weeks was the reason for this decision.
