The University of Houston has opened an investigation into wide receiver Samuel Brown
after video caught him slapping Tulsa defensive back Bryson Powers following Saturday’s game.
Footage of the apparent incident shows Powers engaging with Houston linebacker
Donavan Mutin, his former high school teammate, per Fox News,
when Brown slaps Powers after pointing a finger in his direction.
In the wake of the incident, Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen and the university’s vice president of athletics,
Chris Pezman, released a statement condemning Brown’s behavior.
“This type of conduct is taken very seriously, and the behavior is not reflective of our values or the standards of our program,” the joint statement read.
“We are in the process of gathering more information and will take the appropriate steps moving forward.”
No additional details regarding what may have sparked the incident were provided as of Sunday afternoon.
