EAST LANSING, MI (WILX) -- More details are out on the controversy over Auston Robertson, a former MSU football player convicted of sexual assault.

A source told News 10 that former Athletic Director Mark Hollis wanted Coach Mark Dantonio not to let Robertson on campus.

Former football staffer Curtis Blackwelll claims two assistant coaches also warned Dantonio about Robertson, according to court documents in his lawsuit against Dantonio, Hollis and former MSU President Lou Anna K. Simon.

Robertson had legal problems involving sexual misconduct in high school.

He's serving up to 10 years in state prison after pleading guilty to a criminal sexual conduct charge last year at MSU.
