Columbia, MO – University of Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk has been suspended for the third time in four months after a video surface purporting to show him snorting a line of white powder, school officials said Tuesday.

Athletic director Mack Rhodes and coach Barry Odom announced the punishment on Monday night after a brief video was posted to Twitter.

A video posted online showed a showed a male purportedly using cocaine and called out Mauk by name.

Rhoades and Odom said they were “gathering information” regarding the video but Mauk has been “indefinitely suspended” from the football program in the interim.

“This is an issue we take very seriously and one that will not be tolerated within our program,” the coaches said in a joint statement. “We will take appropriate action once we have all the facts.”

It is Mauk’s third suspension in the last four months. He was suspended in September for an undisclosed violation of team policy and again in November for unspecified disciplinary reasons.
