NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The University of Oklahoma has voted to suspend linebacker Frank Shannon for a year, but the school has been unable to enforce the decision.

In a news release on Monday, school president David L. Boren said the school’s internal disciplinary process voted on June 18 to remove Shannon for a violation of its Title IX policy, which covers sexual misconduct.

Shannon, who has been practicing with the team, started all 13 games last year and led the team with 92 tackles. He had a career-high 16 tackles against Texas last season and had 2.5 tackles for loss against Iowa State the same year, including two sacks.

The school said federal privacy law and other legal considerations prohibited it from making further statements.
