USC Trojans kicker Matt Boermeester has been suspended indefinitely by the University for an apparent code of conduct issue. Tim Tessalone released a statement saying in part:

“While this student code of conduct issue is being investigated, the student will not be representing the university as a member of its athletic team,”

Tessalone further elaborated that:

“Student disciplinary records and proceedings regarding any matter of student conduct are confidential and protected by law.”

Deadspin is reporting that the USC football player had an alleged incident with an ex-girlfriend. For now the investigation appears to be ongoing and the University has not released any other details. In the meantime Boermeester is suspended for an indefinite amount of time.

Boermeester is another USC football player that has been removed from the team in recent months. Linebacker Jabari Ruffin was suspended from the team back in October for an unspecified “student conduct issue”. Osa Masina and Don Hill were also removed from the team and barred from campus stemming from an alleged sexual assault incident which Masina has been charged and is awaiting trial.
