Berezowitz was recently charged with fourth-degree assault.

Sea of Blue

Back in late June, Kentucky football chief of staff Dan Berezowitz was arrested and charged with fourth-degree assault.

The Lexington Herald-Leader later reported that a video showed Berezowitz in a physical altercation with his wife, Jane.

Today during SEC Media Days, head coach Mark Stoops revealed that Berezowitz has been suspended pending an investigation by the university.

Here is an excerpt of the original Herald-Leader report on Berezowitz’s arrest.

“Listed subject (Dan Berezowitz) approached the victim, shoving her into their vehicle’s front driver side door. The victim can be heard on the video stating ‘you hurt my back.’ The victim appeared to strike back at the listed suspect in self defense. Listed suspect later grabbed her by the arm, twisted it, which resulted in the victim falling to the ground. Both subject and victim are uncooperative.”

Following the arrest, Berezowitz was arraigned with a bond of $1,000, which was later posted by Chase Heuke, UK’s director of player personnel.

The 50-year-old Berezowitz initially joined Mark Stoops’ staff in 2013 as the director of recruiting operations before being promoted to chief of staff in 2018.

We will update this story if any more details are revealed.
