Missouri Tigers head football coach Gary Pinkel confirmed on Wednesday morning’s SEC Media Teleconference that Maty Mauk has been reinstated following a four-game suspension.
“Welcomed with open arms,” said Pinkel, stressing his football program is a family.
Pinkel also said that Mauk asked to address his teammates to apologize. Pinkel says Mauk will do that later Wednesday afternoon.
While this being a bye week for the Tigers, Pinkel said no decision on playing time or depth chart status has been made and won’t be made until next week. With a game coming up on Thursday, November 5th, the Tigers who usually hold local media days on Monday afternoons, have bumped it up to Sunday at 2 p.m. It is most likely at that time, we’ll hear from Pinkel on his plans for the Mississippi State game.
Here are the highlights of his call during the teleconference.
