Johnson can appeal suspension from Montana football team

School officials say Johnson would have to submit a request in writing for a hearing before the athletic conduct team. UM President Royce Engstrom told the Missoulian on Friday that school officials will “attend to that as quickly as we can, if that’s what Jordan wishes.”
