Tyrann Mathieu’s uncle Tyrone informed the media that his nephew Tyrann has been at Right Step, a drug and alcohol treatment center, in Houston since Monday. Tyrann will not be attending college this fall to in order to completely concentrate on rehabilitation. Tyrone Mathieu has characterized the decision as a family one.
Tyrann is being mentored daily by former NBA player John Lucas who overcame cocaine and alcohol addiction to become an NBA coach. John Lucas also attempted to help former LSU Tiger Jamarcus Russell overcome his struggles after his release from the Raiders. Frustrated by his lack of progress with Jamarcus, Mr. Lucas fired Jamarcus and asked Jamarcus to leave Houston in April of last year. There are no comments on the situation directly from Tyrann Mathieu or from LSU
Wish Tyrann the best and a speedy recovery. Looking forward to him getting back on the field soon.
