University of Michigan Looking to Fire David Daniels

By David Salazar

The University of Michigan is looking to fire countertenor David Daniels.

Per a report from KOB4, the institution will pursue a recommendation from its president that the singer, who faces sexual assault charges, be dismissed “immediately.” Daniels is currently on leave from the university despite being indicted in Texas back in July 2019 for charges of rape in 2010.

“I have determined that Prof. Daniels’ conduct is inconsistent with the character of tenure at the University of Michigan and therefore constitutes cause for dismissal,” Schlissel wrote in a letter to be considered by the regents who meet Thursday.

Per previous reports, the University of Michigan was aware of Daniels’ sexual misconduct when it hired him back in 2015.

Daniels has repeatedly denied all charges made against him.
