Michigan State has extended the contract of Curtis Blackwell, its suspended director of college advancement and performance, by another month, according to Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press.
Blackwell was suspended Feb. 9, as were three football players, in connection with an investigation into an alleged sexual assault. His one-year contract expired March 31, but the university extended his contract for the month of April as the investigation continued. The latest extension is his second.
The investigation is still ongoing.
Blackwell, 39, was hired in August 2013. He earned $83,435 in 2016.
