Dorial Green-Beckham suspension: Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel responds

Earlier this week it was announced that the Missouri Tigers football program had indefinitely suspended embattled wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham for an undisclosed violation of team rules. This is the third serious incident involving Green-Beckham during his time at Missouri, and under the direction of head coach Gary Pinkel.

Recently, Pinkel spoke to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about the incident.

Well, he spoke about as much as he would, as he generally doesn’t go into much detail about disciplinary issues:

“Obviously, I have 126 players and I’m responsible for every one of them. I take that responsibility, just like I have with the three kids that I raised. Obviously, I’m disappointed. I’m frustrated. We run this program with integrity. We teach our players to be accountable, responsible people. When they make mistakes — they’re going to make some mistakes — but when they’re serious mistakes, obviously that stings. It stings me. It stings the players. It stings our fans. My job is to get that fixed. That’s what I intend to do.”

Of course this stings, as it seemed toward the end of last year that Green-Beckham was making some serious strides both on and off the field.

As of now, no details of the alleged incident have been released, however a police report is expected to be sent out by the end of the week.
