After a long string of events culminating in retirement from the NFL, Antonio Brown decided to go back to college.
This comes after Brown was released by the New England Patriots due to his inappropriate handling of the sexual assault allegations placed against him.
Brown announced this on his Instagram story earlier this morning by posting a picture of his class schedule with the caption, “Back to school.” He then tagged CMU Athletics in the post, indicating that he will be taking classes there.

It was later announced that Brown will be taking these classes in an online degree program, as opposed to going into the classroom. Brown, 31, was a student at Central Michigan University from 2007-2009.
Brown then left school after his junior year when he was drafted in the sixth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he spent the next eight years. He then requested a trade from the Steelers and ended up with the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders released Brown for misconduct. He was then picked up by the Patriots and stayed on the team for 11 days before being released.
