Ex-NFL player, woman settle suits against Michigan State

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A former NFL player has settled a lawsuit against Michigan State University alleging his rights were violated when he was expelled after a sexual misconduct investigation.

The Detroit Free Press reports the settlement between Keith Mumphery and the East Lansing school was reached Thursday. The newspaper says a lawsuit filed against the university by the woman involved also has been settled.

Mumphery wasn't charged with a crime, but he said his NFL career was ruined after his 2016 expulsion from a graduate program was reported by news media a year later. The wide receiver was cut by the Houston Texans in 2017.

The federal lawsuit filed last May alleged Michigan State acted against Mumphery to "appease" a female student, despite inconsistencies about what happened between them in 2015.
