Reggie Lynch Drops Sexual Misconduct Appeal, Ends Tenure at Minnesota

Minnesota basketball player Reggie Lynch will leave the university after dropping his appeal of findings he committed sexual misconduct related to an April 2016 sexual assault.

"I did not commit any of the acts I'm accused of," Lynch said at a news conference in his attorney's office. "In today's climate people automatically assume you're guilty."

"My friends, family and anyone who knows me knows the truth; I have never and would never commit any of the acts I am being accused of. As the son of an amazing mother, I respect all women.
