Banned! LSU bans Guice, erases records

          LSU is set to ban former running back Derrius Guice from the athletics program indefinitely and will also erase his statistics from its record books.

First reported Friday by The Advocate in Baton Rouge, in response to last month’s Husch Blackwell report, which detailed LSU’s “serious institutional failure” when it came to handling cases of physical and gender violence. Husch Blackwell is the outside law firm LSU hired in November to review its handling of Title IX cases after USAToday chronicled systemic failures.

The former Tigers back was charged for domestic violence incidents three separate times in 2020 and had two women accuse him of sexual assault during his freshman year in 2016.


LSU is also terminating its relationship with longtime law firm Taylor Porter.

Former LSU athletic director Joe Alleva had recommended the program fire former head coach Les Miles for “inappropriate behavior” in 2013. The recommendation was part of an investigation that looked into how LSU handled prior sexual misconducts. Alleva’s petition didn’t result in Miles’ termination. Miles remained HC until 2016. Taylor Porter, who has been the university’s law firm for the last 80 years, conducted that 2013 investigation which revealed Miles had been accused of texting female students and kissing one of them.

Only three of the Tigers’ 16 board members were informed and involved in the Taylor Porter investigation after agreeing that further review by the entire board was not necessary.

Taylor Porter’s counsel David Shelby stated the firm made no recommendations about those involved in the process and denied claims of participating in a cover-up.

LSU suspended a pair of athletic officials March. Senior associate athletic director Verge Ausberry was suspended for 30 days and senior associate athletic director Miriam Segar for 21 days, interim president Tom Galligan announced at the time.
