SMU suspends CB Teddy Knox for role in multi-car crash

smu, football, helmet, view

The SMU football team suspended cornerback Teddy Knox on Thursday, a day after he was charged by Dallas police with multiple criminal violations related to a chain-reaction car crash on March 30.

Knox and Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice were alleged to be driving the cars that sparked a collision that left four people with minor injuries. Both men face one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury.

The SMU football program issued a statement that read: “SMU has been notified by Dallas Police of an arrest warrant for Theodore ‘Teddy’ Knox, a student-athlete on the Mustang football team. Knox has been suspended from the team. SMU takes these allegations seriously. Federal student privacy laws prevent the University from discussing details involving student disciplinary proceedings.”

Police allege that Rice’s Lamborghini and Knox’s Corvette were speeding when they sparked the multi-car collision on the North Central Expressway (U.S. 75).

Knox is a 21-year-old rising junior. He played on offense and defense in 2022, when he had four catches for 3 yards and made four tackles. Last season he finished with four tackles while seeing most of his action as a special teams player.

Rice, who turns 24 on April 22, grew up in the North Texas suburb of North Richland Hills and attended college in Dallas at SMU.

The SMU football team is moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2024 season after going 11-3 last year, 8-0 in the American Athletic Conference.
