Report: Oregon tight end Pharaoh Brown suspended for role in snowball fight
Oregon suspended starting tight end Pharaoh Brown for the Alamo Bowl for his role in a viral video that showed University of Oregon students and several football players participating in a snowball fight, reports the Oregonian‘s Andrew Greif.
The tenth-ranked Ducks play Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30.
Head coach Mark Helfrich said over the weekend that discipline was coming for those involved in the snowball fight.
According the report, other players have been disciplined internally and more suspensions could come later for the snowball incident that players and more than 100 students participated in.
On the video, a group of people stopped cars and threw snowballs at them and then dumped snow on the vehicle’s windshields. One of the cars was driven by a former Oregon professor, who said he would not press charges.
“On Saturday, I was made aware of an incident that occurred Friday afternoon during the snow day involving multiple Oregon students, including members of the football team,” Helfrich said in a statement. “The behavior exhibited in the video is completely unacceptable and dangerous. We take this matter very seriously and disciplinary actions have begun.”
