#8: DePaul AD Lenti Ponsetto and MBB HC Leitao have reportedly filed for an emergency order of protection against former AHC Carter, alleging that Carter made threatening comments towards them. According to the order, which was requested on September 25, Carter, upset at being let go from the DePaul coaching staff, told Leitao he would "physically bury him" and that he would "knock on [Leitao's] door at home." Additionally, Carter tweeted ostensibly threatening song lyrics earlier in the month, and those phrases were also included in the order, which Leitao requested also be extended to his wife and son. The university has since released a statement, which reads, in part: "Like many institutions, the University must sometimes seek assistance from the courts to protect its rights and its people. As these are pending legal matters, we are unfortunately unable to comment further." (link)
