Four arrested Tide players no longer with the team
See the rest here.As expected, the Alabama careers of four players arrested in connection to a pair of robberies earlier this month have come to an end.While the term “dismissed” was not used, head coach Nick Saban confirmed Wednesday that the quartet — running back Brent Calloway, linebacker Tyler Hayes, defensive lineman D.J. Pettway and defensive back Eddie Williams – are “no longer associated with the football program.” All four players were indefinitely suspended Feb. 12, just a couple of days after their arrests.
There was at least a glimmer of hope that Calloway would survive the bloodletting. But this is at least his second run-in with the law and was already on his second chance. The other three were as gone as yesterday as soon as the arrest reports were released.
Indeed, Saban's hands were all but tied when it came to Hayes, Pettway and Williams as the University was poised to expel them anyway for such egregious violations of the conduct code.
