USU Police Chief Morris Resigns Following Comments to Student-Athletes

USU Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police Earl Morris resigned from the university on Thursday, Dec. 16, 2021. Morris had been placed on administrative leave Wednesday pending confirmation of reprehensible and unacceptable comments made to USU student-athletes. The university was made aware of those recorded comments earlier this week.

Kent Harris has been named interim director and police chief. Harris has more than 30 years of police experience and has been a member of the USU Police for the past 12 years. He holds a Master of Social Work degree from USU.
