MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Four University of Minnesota football players being investigated in a sexual assault were kicked off the team Wednesday.
Dominic Jones, a cornerback charged Monday with third-degree criminal sexual conduct in connection with the alleged rape of an 18-year-old woman in April, and three teammates - running back E.J. Jones, defensive end Alex Daniels and defensive back Keith Massey were dismissed from the team, coach Tim Brewster said.
``It is an honor and a privilege to wear the uniform of the University of Minnesota and we have exceedingly high expectations for each of our student-athletes,'' Brewster said in a statement issued by the school. ``We spend a considerable amount of time addressing our players regarding their personal conduct and we will not compromise our values. We are establishing a culture of integrity and we will demand that our players are held accountable for their actions.''
