ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Michigan tight end Carson Butler has been reinstated to the team after being cleared of charges of attacking a student on St. Patrick's Day.
Butler was released from the team in March after being accused of assaulting the student but was acquitted in July.
Coach Lloyd Carr said Tuesday he decided to allow Butler to return after the judicial process had played out.
``Because of that, I just felt it would be extremely unfair not to give him another opportunity,'' Carr said during a news conference. ``What he's trying to do is do some things he's been asked to do and so we'll see how that works out.''
Butler started the final six games of last season, finishing fourth on the team with 19 receptions.
He was charged along reserve defensive back Christian Richards, who was convicted of assault and sentenced to six months' probation. He was released from the team in March.
Michigan begins its season Sept. 1 at home against Appalachian State.
