Montana QB Jordan remains enrolled, on team

Missoula, MT (Sports Network) - Internet reports over the holiday weekend that University of Montana starting quarterback Jordan Johnson was expelled from the program are false.

Kevin McRae, the associate commissioner of higher education for communications and human resources in the Montana University System, released a statement to The Sports Network on Tuesday on behalf of Montana president Dr. Royce Engstrom and confirming Johnson is enrolled at the Big Sky Conference university.

The statement said, "Jordan Johnson is enrolled as a student at the University of Montana. He completed spring semester. He is not enrolled for summer semester or taking summer courses, but he is pre-enrolled for fall semester. He is on the UM football roster, which means he is academically eligible and in 'good standing' as an enrolled student. A student-athlete must be in good standing with the university to be on an athletic roster."

In March, a female Montana student alleged she was sexually assaulted by Johnson and obtained a temporary restraining order against him. No charges have been filed by police, although Johnson and the female student have a civil no- contact agreement.

Johnson, a sophomore from Eugene, Ore., helped Montana win a share of the Big Sky championship and reach the FCS semifinals last season.

Montana has had a troubled offseason, including the firing of football coach Robin Pflugrad and athletic director Jim O'Day.

The university is being investigated by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Education for how it handles rape cases.
