Back in June, Kentucky Wildcats football Chief of Staff Dan Berezowitz was arrested on charges of fourth-degree assault after a physical altercation with his wife.

Those charges were dismissed two weeks ago, but Berezowitz remained suspended, and according to a new report, he will be let go at the end of the season.

Kentucky football spokesman Tony Neely told Josh Moore of the Herald-Leader that Berezowitz, who has been on Mark Stoops’ staff since arriving in Lexington, has been reassigned within the athletic department.

“Berezowitz will remain in UK’s employment through Nov. 29 and as of Thursday has no responsibilities pertaining to the football program. Until his employment ends, he will act upon “duties as assigned.”

Before becoming the chief of staff, Berezowitz was UK’s director of recruiting operations from 2014-2017. During his Thursday press conference, Stoops spoke briefly about Berezowitz.

“I just want to say how much I appreciate the work he’s (Berezowitz) done here for a long time,” Stoops stated. “He’s a guy that works really around the clock, sacrifices his life to this university. I greatly appreciate Dan and the work that he did for us here. That’s really all I want to say as far as the reorganization and personnel and all that.”
