Defense quality control coach Dion King is no longer employed by the  College, according to an email statement from director of varsity  communications Rick Bender. During last Saturday's football game at Harvard Stadium King punched a hole through a window in the press box when Harvard University recovered a muffed punt by Dartmouth, which resulted in a touchdown for Harvard that reduced Dartmouth's then-14 point lead. As of Monday, Bender said King had been put on paid administrative leave.

The Washington Post reported that a fan sitting below the window sustained a laceration to the neck from the falling broken glass. The Valley News reported that Bender said police arrived in the press box to speak with King following the incident, but did not arrest or cite him. However, stadium security escorted King outside of Harvard Stadium.
