Michigan State spokesperson Jason Cody confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Curtis Blackwell, Michigan State football’s Director of College Advancement and Performance, has been suspended indefinitely with pay.
Blackwell, who is in his fourth year as a member of Michigan State football’s staff, is heavily involved with mentoring the current student athletes on Michigan State’s football team and plays a significant role in high school recruitment.
Last Thursday, Michigan State announced that three football players and one member of the football staff were suspended indefinitely while the university conducted a sexual assault investigation. However, Cody did not release any details as to why Blackwell was suspended.
Blackwell was a former assistant football coach at both Detroit Martin Luther King High School (2003-05, 2007) and Detroit Mackenzie High School (2006). Blackwell was also the co-director of the Sound Mind, Sound Body Football Academy, a series of football camps across the country that hosts a number of high-level high school coaches and talent.
