Things just keep getting worse for the University of Louisville. Today, the UofL football program suspended tight end Kemari Averett after he was charged with wanton endangerment and assault in the fourth degree.
“Kemari Averett has been suspended immediately from all football activities per further investigation,” Bobby Petrino said in a release. “We work hard every day to develop a culture of accountability that everyone in our program must live up to. Any conduct that does not meet these expectations will not be tolerated within the Louisville football program.”
The hypocrisy of that comment coming from Bobby Petrino is certainly rich. Averett has eight catches this season for 65 yards and two touchdowns. He is being held on a $10,000 bond at the Louisville Metro Corrections Department.
