Rutgers University has hired a law firm to investigate bullying allegations against a former football player against an assistant coach.

University lawyer John Farmer Jr. had announced last week that he would conduct a review.
 
But he has since recused himself from the case. University spokesman Pete McDonough tells the Star-Ledger that Farmer stepped down because he could be called as a witness in the case. He did not detail his involvement, though.
 
Cornerback Jevon Tyree has said defensive coordinator Dave Cohen verbally and threatened to head-butt him last spring.
 
Tyree quit the team on Nov. 6. He remains on scholarship for this school year.
