CU chancellor suspended after Tumpkin investigation

BOULDER — University of Colorado Boulder chancellor Phil DiStefano has been handed a 10-day suspension over the handling of domestic-violence allegations against a former assistant football coach.

The CU Board of Regents handed down the suspension Monday over allegations against former assistant coach Joe Tumpkin. Athletic director Rick George and head football coach Mike MacIntyre each will donate $100,000 to a domestic-violence organization.

Former U.S. senator Ken Salazar, who was retained by the Board of Regents, presented a report on the university’s handling of the allegations. The report said that while there was no intentional law-breaking in the university’s handling of the matter, “Mistakes were made.”
