Student 'Threatened to Kill Me,' Devine Says

Noel Devine, who last Friday plead no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge, said the West Virginia student he allegedly assaulted Feb. 16 at a Morgantown nightclub "threatened to kill me."

Devine said he was approached and threatened by the unnamed individual on three separate occasions that evening, including one incident where the person grabbed a bottle from the bar and asked the Mountaineer running back if he "had a problem."

Devine said the altercation occurred after the individual was kicked out of the club, with the person was waiting for Devine as he exited.

Devine said that, as a result of the altercation, he was ordered to pay a $250 court fine and perform 24 hours of community service.

"Other than [the altercation], everything else is great," said Devine, who acknowledged being nervous when Rich Rodriguez left for Michigan. But Bill Stewart and his new coaching staff are "pretty cool."

Said Devine: "Everything is straight now."

Noel Devine is a sick RB. He runs like he's twice his size. I don't care that people say he is small. He's going to the NFL. He's quick as lightning and never stops moving his feet. He can catch the ball too. He's just an all around great back.
