Michigan State Basketball Head Coach Tom Izzo released a statement Monday regarding former Spartan Kenny Kaminski. He said, “Despite multiple opportunities, Kenny Kaminski could not live up to the obligations necessary to be a part of our program. Being a Spartan is a special opportunity, and at Michigan State we do everything we can to provide an amazing experience for our student-athletes. With that privilege also comes a responsibility to conduct oneself in a certain manner. After he repeatedly failed to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss Kenny from the program.
Izzo then went on to say, “Although this is disappointing, it is just a minor setback as we are coming off one of the best summers in recent years. I remain excited about the prospects of our team moving forward. We have a group of individuals dedicated to a common goal and they are willing to do whatever it takes to reach their lofty standards, and ready to push each other to be the best they can be.”
Kaminski announced via twitter on Saturday that he would be transferring to another school but did not say where. He was suspended twice last season for a total of six games after failing to take care of business academically.
