Utah defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley has been suspended indefinitely from the football program after it was made known that he had used a racial slur in a text message from 2013.

Scalley admitted to using a racial slur in a text message and said he “made a terrible mistake.”

He added that immediately after he sent the message, he apologized to the individual and their family for language that was “offensive and hurtful to not only the African-American community, but to all.”

Harlan said that he consulted with Utah president Ruth Watkins and that an outside law firm will conduct a review to “seek further details and determine whether this was an isolated incident.”
