Shafer on Naesean Howard: ‘We have decided to part ways’

first_imgNaesean Howard is no longer on the Syracuse football team, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer confirmed in a statement released Tuesday night. Nate Mink of The Post-Standard was the first to report Howard’s status.“We have decided to part ways,” Shafer said of Howard in the statement. “We wish Naesean all the best in the future.”Howard, a two-way player at nearby West Genesee (New York) High School, was the first to commit to Syracuse in the Class of 2014. He did so as a running back, but entered training camp as a safety. During training camp, Howard was suspended from the team for missing curfew and did not attend the Orange’s trip to Fort Drum.At that time, Howard spent time with graduate assistant and former SU linebacker Siriki Diabate. Shafer said Howard “learned his lesson” after rejoining the team, and there hasn’t been an announcement of whether he’ll be able to do so again.

Mariners GM Jerry Dipoto denies allegations of sexism, racism

first_img Mariners sign Ichiro Suzuki ahead of expected Japan sendoff, report says Dipoto denied the accusations, calling them “untrue,” and took responsibility for the controversy that came after he fired her for cause just one year into her three-year contract. He had hired Martin in October 2017 as the team’s high performance director to help the team modernize its training and conditioning regimes, a position Dipoto created.”At the end of the day, my belief is that justice will prevail,” Dipoto said Thursday, per The Seattle Times. “There is an ongoing investigation that I’m not going to get into. I’ve been at this now for 30 years. I know a lot of people in this game. I’m not sexist, nor am I a racist. The accusations that have been made are untrue. I believe that will wash out as this unfolds. But I can only speak for myself. The responsibility for the development of the program and hiring Dr. Martin to come here was on me and I take full responsibility for it. I’m embarrassed at how this has unfolded.” Related News MLB is investigating Martin’s claims, including a post she made on social media in November implied Dipoto, McKay and manager Scott Servais had called Latino players “lazy, dumb and stupid.” Martin has since filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the franchise, according to the Times. She claims in the suit she complained earlier this year to team owners John Stanton, Buck Ferguson and CEO Kevin Mather about alleged discrimination, to no avail. Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto strongly denied accusations of racism and sexism made by former staffer Dr. Lorena Martin on Thursday for the first time since the allegations surfaced in November.Dipoto and director of player development Andy McKay, who also was named in the allegations, reiterated the team’s belief Martin fabricated claims against members of the front office.  “It’s a difficult situation, obviously,” McKay said. “It’s one that requires thought and it requires reflection. But in terms of the people I work with on a daily basis the support has been unanimous and 100 percent positive. The accusations are serious, but they are completely false. I never said anything like that. I’ve never thought that. I’ve never felt it. It didn’t happen.“Fortunately, I think I have a track record with people I’ve worked with, not just here, but in Colorado and in Sacramento that this is not just very believable. I’m not planning on addressing it. I haven’t addressed it. This is the first time I’ve addressed it. And I’m grateful for the Mariners. They’ve supported me. Major League Baseball is doing an investigation that is very thorough and very complete. And at the end of it, I’ll feel very good about where my name will stand.”The Mariners issued a statement in November denying all of the accusations, calling them “outrageous, false claims.”last_img read more
