Former Michigan State wide receiver Keith Mumphrey was expelled in 2016 after the school ruled that he violated the school’s sexual conduct policy.

The Detroit Free-Press acquired the documents relating to Mumphrey’s expulsion via a Freedom of Information Act request. He cannot set foot on MSU’s campus until Jan. 1, 2019.

Mumphery was accused of sexually assaulting a student in her MSU dorm room on March 17, 2015. The woman reported it to MSU Police that night shortly after the alleged incident. According to the campus police report, the two met a few months before the incident on an online dating site, agreeing to meet at her dorm room weeks later. The report details conflicting accounts of who was the aggressor and whether elements of their sexual behavior were consensual.

Charges were never filed against Mumphrey due to a lack of evidence proving the charges “beyond a reasonable doubt.” After a university investigation — Title IX investigations have different standards than criminal indictments — Mumphrey was told on June 7 that he couldn’t re-enroll at Michigan State and that he was banned through 2018.

Mumphrey’s final season at Michigan State was in 2014 and the report said he was planning on attending graduate classes at the school. A fifth-round choice of the Houston Texans in the 2015 NFL draft, Mumphrey has 24 catches for 198 yards over two seasons with the team. He also returned 36 punts in 2015.

At Michigan State in 2014, Mumphrey had 26 catches for 495 yards and three touchdowns.

Michigan State recently parted ways with a staffer who was suspended in February. Curtis Blackwell was suspended when the school announced that three still-unidentified football players were being investigated for a January sexual assault accusation. Blackwell’s contract expires Wednesday and won’t be renewed. He was the team’s director of college advancement and performance.

The investigation into the accusations against the players is currently ongoing. The alleged victim’s attorney said the players accused have been found in violation of the school’s misconduct policy.
