LSU Banning Derrius Guice From Athletics Program, Removing His Statistics From Record Books
Soon, Derrius Guice will be unknown to the LSU program.
The team is set to ban former running back Derrius Guice from the athletics program indefinitely and will also erase his statistics from its record books, according to ESPN’s Heather Dinich.
Two women accused him of sexual assault while he was a freshman with the Tigers, while another one says he took partially nude pictures of her without her consent and showed them to other players in the team’s locker room.
LSU is also terminating its relationship with longtime law firm Taylor Porter.
Guice and his legal team released a statement back in August regarding the sexual assault allegations.
“At no time were allegations of physical or sexual assault brought against Derrius during his years as a student-athlete at LSU.” Guice’s attorney, Peter Greenspun, said. “To bring up such assertions only after the Virginia charges were initiated certainly calls into question the credibility, nature and timing of what is being alleged years later.”
