The controversy surrounding former Mississippi State running back Josh Robinson may be coming to an end.
On Tuesday night, Robinson was cited by police for trespassing at the university’s athletic facilities, and the former Bulldogs rusher took to social media to blame Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen for calling the police.
Mullen claims a Wednesday morning conversation with Bulldogs beat reporter Michael Bonner was the first he heard of the situation, and that he was not the person that called the police.
As it turns out, it was one of the Mississippi State track coaches that alerted authorities about Robinson’s late-night use of the facilities.
On Wednesday, Mississippi State assistant athletics director of media relations Bill Martin released an official statement on the matter on behalf of the university:

Given the official nature of that report, hopefully there is some resolution to this story in sight. It appears to have been a miscommunication, or perhaps a lack of communication, between Robinson and the athletic department that led to the late-night drama.
