Ex-Missouri QB Maty Mauk just issued a handwritten letter to his fans -- saying he's disappointed over being cut from the football program ... and insisting that he never meant to hurt anyone.
In the letter, Mauk doesn't specifically reference the cocaine video or the mystery incident that led to his dismissal -- but says he's thankful to the Athletic Dept. for the support over the years.
Here's a transcription of the letter:
"It is with a heavy heart that I come to term with the fact that I will not be a part of this great university of Missouri athletic organization."
"There are no words to describe my disappointment. While I cannot provide you with specifics about my future, there is one thing that I am very sure of – how incredibly thankful I am for the overwhelming support I have felt from the Athletic Department, the coaches, academics, my teammates, and most of all from the fans."
"I will and cannot tell you how much this support has meant to me and how thankful I am. Please know that my intent was never to bring any harm to the University or football program. I will continue to make myself the best I can be. I wish the Mizzou football program the best."
