Employee Michael Taphorn suffered a burst ear drum when punched by Hernandez, and initially told police he wanted to pursue charges. But he later had second thoughts, according to the supplemental report.
Taphorn stated he had been contacted by legal staff and Florida coaches about a possible agreement in the case. A Florida spokesperson told ESPN.com’s Andy Katz Tuesday night that “No one from the university’s general counsel’s office was involved in this matter.”
Well, that eliminates half the usual suspects. It’ll be interesting to hear if Corch, who’s already getting his back covered by the local media (the power of Seat 37F?), issues a denial for the other half.
