While we do not know the full details of what occurred in this instance, we were able to learn enough information and decide that it is in the best interest of Kansas Football that we separate from this individual. We condemn violence of any kind against women.”
A post on Twitter sent out Wednesday night accused Davis of domestic violence. The tweet contained graphic photographs of a woman with a bruised and swollen eye and blood on her lip.
