Statement from Vice Chancellor for Public Affairs Beth Fortune on dismissal of Chris Boyd from football team

Posted on Tuesday, Sep. 17, 2013 — 3:40 PM

Vanderbilt’s athletic administration, in conjunction with its head football coach, today dismissed Chris Boyd from the university’s football team and athletic program. The action came after an ongoing review that included information disclosed during a hearing Sept. 13 in Davidson County Criminal Court.

The review concluded that Mr. Boyd’s admitted actions are clearly inconsistent with the high standards of behavior expected of our student-athletes.
