Aug. 26, 2005

LAWRENCE, Kan. — University of Kansas Head Football Coach Mark Mangino has suspended sophomore fullback Bruce Ringwood from the team indefinitely in the aftermath of an altercation last Sunday night in Kansas City.

“I have suspended Bruce until we gather all the facts related to this incident,” Mangino said. “I’m disturbed that one of our players would be involved in something like this. We have high standards of conduct that we expect from our student-athletes. This behavior goes against everything we stand for at the University of Kansas.”

STATEMENT FROM Bruce Ringwood:
“I would like to apologize to my teammates, coaches and my university for my involvement in this incident. I regret that it happened, and my focus now is on doing everything I can do to be a good student and a good football player.”
