Expulsion proposed for Minnesota center Reggie Lynch after sexual misconduct incidents

England's Joe Root drinks during a break in play against Australia during the fourth day of their Ashes cricket test match in Sydney. Roots was hospitalized with severe dehydration later Sunday which was Sydne

It was the third time Lynch has been accused of sexual assault since transferring to the University of Minnesota in 2015; the first allegation did not result in charges.

Lynch was suspended from the team on Friday by athletics director Mark Coyle, following an investigation by the University's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. He denies any sexual assault.

Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Abby Simons of the Minneapolis Star Tribune tweeted out quotes.

Pacyga responded and said "in no way shape or form" was he taking down the movement.

Pacyga denied all allegations against Lynch in a lengthy press conference.

Lynch "fully cooperated" with the EOAA investigation without a lawyer, Pacyga said, attending multiple interviews during the investigations, which started on October 9 and October 27.

The third woman coming forward against Lynch "resulted in a January 3 finding by the U's Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EOAA) that Lynch was responsible for sexual misconduct in an alleged sexual assault that occurred on April 7, 2016", Olson and Stahl wrote.

Lynch, meanwhile, has not decided on whether he will continue challenging the school's findings-or even whether he will still attend school at the University of Minnesota or play basketball with the team.

Requesting a hearing from the Student Sexual Misconduct Subcommittee is the next step for students who want to appeal an EOAA ruling. He is averaging 10.1 points and 8 rebounds per game this season.

Attorney Ryan Pacyga has called a news conference for 1 p.m. Wednesday.

"(Lynch) didn't do much yesterday just because I'm more focused on the guys who are playing more than anything", Pitino said. "I will continue to tell the truth about what happened to me and I appreciate all the support I've been receiving". He was never criminally charged in the case, and the EOAA cleared him. And when he asked her to hang out, she said, 'I wish it were that easy; I've got exams and things like that'.

Pacyga also questioned why it took months for the accusers to report the incidents. He said in both cases they were not investigated until 18 months following the alleged incident, which would erase a lot of potential evidence. "... Had these incidents been reported in a timely manner, Reggie Lynch could have been vindicated. They believe we can". "Reggie Lynch has been robbed of opportunity for fair investigation and hearing".
