Report: Gibbons “Permanently Separated” From U-M

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A published report says the University of Michigan has expelled ex-Wolverines kicker Brendan Gibbons for violating the school’s sexual misconduct policies.

A story in The Michigan Daily says the student newspaper ( ) reviewed documents that showed the Ann Arbor school “permanently separated” Gibbons from the university effective Dec. 20, 2013.

The 22-year-old was Michigan’s starting kicker for the past three seasons. His eligibility to play ran out at season’s end.

The newspaper says Gibbons was a graduate social work student.

It says the university’s Office of Student Conflict Resolutions acted on the basis of a Nov. 22, 2009, incident.

The newspaper says university officials declined comment on the case. The Associated Press left a phone message Tuesday night for Gibbons at a listed phone number in Wellington, Fla.
