Former Michigan State University football player Keith Mumphery is banned from campus through the end of 2018 because the University's Division of Student Affairs and Services found that he violated MSU's Relationship Violence and Sexual Misconduct policy.

That finding is included in a police report stemming from a rape investigation. A woman told campus police Mumphery raped her in her dorm room on March 17 of 2015. The Ingham County Prosecutor's Office decided in September of that year not to file charges because the accusation could not be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.

The Division of Student Affairs and Services notified MSU Police in June of 2016 that Mumphery was "Permanently removed from MSU effective immediately," and is "Prohibited from reenrolling at MSU in any capacity." He is not allowed to visit campus or use University facilities through December 31, 2018. Mumphery was chosen by the Houston Texans in the 205 NFL draft and played for the team in 27 games over the last two season.

Michigan State University is not commenting on the case. MSU spokesman Jason Cody tells the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act prevents the University from discussing the details of any Title IX case.
