Suspended star football player reinstated to McGill Redmen

February 2, 2015

Suspended McGill University football player Luis-Andres Guimont-Mota has been reinstated to the McGill Redmen football team after being acquitted of domestic violence charges. Guimont-Mota was suspended in September after being charged with assault and uttering threats against his estranged wife; the charges were dropped when the complainant failed to show up at court to testify. “It was always said he would be reinstated once justice had followed its course,” said university spokeswoman Carole Graveline. The head coach of the football team at the time, Clint Uttley, resigned over the university’s handling of the charges and suspension. The head coach position remains vacant, although Metro News reports that McGill expects to announce a new coach in the coming weeks. Metro News | Montreal Gazette
