JONESBORO, AR - One week ago Michael Dyer reaffirmed his commitment to Arkansas State, now he no longer has that option.
Arkansas State Head Football Coach Gus Malzahn issued a statement today that the junior running back has been dismissed from the football team for violating team rules.
“I am truly disappointed that it didn’t work out here at ASU for Mike,” said Malzahn. “I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future.”
Dyer was not eligible for the 2012 season after transferring from Auburn, but Red Wolf fans had high hopes for the former Little Rock Christian star who took home offensive MVP honors in the 2011 BCS national championship game.
No word yet on Dyer's future, but due to the NCAA's "double-transfer" policy, he won't be eligible to play this season, regardless of what school he attends.
