Frank Clark's future at Michigan remains unclear
While Michigan plans to honor 12 seniors before Saturday's final football game of the season at Michigan Stadium, Frank Clark, dismissed from the team Monday and charged with domestic violence and assault, both misdemeanors, after an alleged incident with his girlfriend in an Ohio hotel, obviously will not be part of the celebration.
Clark, however, remains enrolled at Michigan this semester, a university spokesman said Friday. It is too early for any student to be enrolled for the winter semester, so it is unclear what Clark's future at Michigan holds.
It also is unclear whether Clark will remain on scholarship. According to the UM spokesman, the student in question must provide written permission to talk about scholarship status, since that is part of a protected educational record.
Clark pleaded not guilty to both charges Monday in a Sandusky, Ohio, courtroom and posted bail.
Michigan coach Brady Hoke, who has a zero tolerance for domestic abuse, dismissed Clark from the team. Hoke said this week he has spoken with Clark and will continue to support him but would not reveal details of the conversation.
According to a report in the Sandusky Register, Clark could still face a felony charge.
