U. of Iowa Releases Some Records from Coker Case
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The University of Iowa is refusing to release records showing how its administration responded to a woman's sexual assault claim against running back Marcus Coker.

The school released nine pages of records on Monday that don't shed any light on the situation involving Coker, who was suspended for last month's Insight Bowl for unspecified misconduct and later left the football program. The school claimed all other documents in the case cannot be released because of a student privacy law.

A woman who received medical treatment Oct. 28 told police Coker assaulted her hours earlier at his residence. Coker was not charged criminally after the woman refused to seek charges, but his suspension came after a university investigation.

Coker played the final five games of the regular season before his suspension.
