Utah suspends DC Morgan Scalley for texting racial slur

Utah has suspended defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley for using a racial slur in a 2013 text message.

Utes athletic director Mark Harlan said in a statement Friday that he was made aware of a social media post that referenced the text message.

Utah will have an outside firm review the matter for more details and to determine whether it was an isolated incident. Morgan will be suspended until the review is completed.

“The use of any form of racist language is not only antithetical to our policies and our values, but it is an affront to all of us, especially our African-American community members,” Harlan said.
