Report: Suspended Michigan State assistant got contract extended one month
According to a report from ESPN, suspended Michigan State recruiting coordinator Curtis Blackwell recently received a one-month contract extension.
Blackwell’s contract was set to expire at the end of this week. He was operating on a one-year contract, according to ESPN. Now, his contract will expire at the end of April.
Blackwell was suspended indefinitely on Feb. 9, but he was still being paid while suspended. The university also announced that three players and one member of the MSU coaching staff were suspended during an ongoing investigation into an alleged sexual assault.
The university did not confirm that Blackwell was involved in the investigation, but he’s the only MSU assistant currently suspended.
Michigan State has not revealed the names of the players and the coach involved in the alleged sexual assault because the investigation is ongoing.
Before he took on the role of director of college advancement and performance at MSU, Blackwell was the co-director of the Sound Mind Sound Body camps.
The Spartans will still host their spring game this Saturday afternoon.
