Mark Stoops’ chief of staff has been sidelined. Kentucky’s head football coach revealed at SEC Media Days that Dan Berezowitz has been suspended since his mid-summer arrest.
“He’s out right now. He’s suspended. It’s a university investigation,” Stoops told local reporters prior to taking the stage in the Wynfrey Hotel’s grand ballroom. “You know how serious we take all of those allegations; our university is and we’re in the process of going through that investigation.”
Berezowitz was arrested late Sunday, June 27, and charged with fourth degree assault stemming from a physical altercation with his wife. One of Stoops’ original Kentucky staff members, he was promoted to chief of staff in 2018.
It was the second offseason arrest by a UK staff member this offseason. Wide receiver coach Jovon Bouknight was arrested in May and charged with a DUI. He served a suspension and returned to work with the Wildcats this summer.
