UNT linebacker Mike Stojkovic pleaded no contest to two counts of misdemeanor assault on Friday.
Stojkovic, who is sitting out this season to deal with what head coach Dan McCarney described as personal issues, received 15 month of deferred adjudication probation. He must also perform 80 hours of community service.
Stojkovic’s attorney James Horton did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
McCarney confirmed that Stojkovic had left the team in early May. He returned to the team by late July, when McCarney said he would spend the 2012 season as a redshirt.
The former Katy standout is still working out with UNT, which will face Florida Atlantic today.
UNT public relations officer Buddy Price said that privacy laws prevent the school from disclosing any additional information on Stojkovic or the case.
Stojkovic stepped into UNT’s starting lineup in the third game of last season after starting outside linebacker Jeremy Phillips suffered a knee injury and started the rest of the season.
He finished fifth on the team with 48 tackles in 2011.
Stojkovic played at Katy before spending a year at Valley Forge Military Academy, where he posted 147 tackles in his only season at the school.
Stojkovic was a member of UNT’s 2011 recruiting class and played for the Mean Green as a freshman.
