“The Providence Police Department announced that Providence College student-athlete Alyn Breed has been charged with multiple felonies for actions that occurred off campus on Saturday, April 1,” the school said in a statement, according to ESPN. “As a result of these allegations, athletic director Steve Napolillo and head coach Kim English have determined that Breed is suspended from the men’s basketball team and will not be able to participate in other athletic department related activities.
“(Providence) will continue its student conduct disciplinary process regarding this matter. There will be no further comment at this time.”

Other charges include unlawful entry of a dwelling, theft, vandalism and taking someone’s car without permission, according to The Providence Journal.
Breed averaged 4.8 points and 18.5 minutes per game this season as the Friars earned a No. 11 seed in March Madness 2023, where they were eliminated in the first round by Kentucky.

English was hired as the team’s new coach after his predecessor Ed Cooley left to coach Big East rival Georgetown.
Before that, English was the head coach at George Mason.
Breed, a native of Powder Springs, Ga., previously announced his intention to stay with the team despite the coaching change, but his future is uncertain.
