Csont'e York officially dismissed from Michigan
It doesn't come as a surprise, but suspended receiver Csont'e York has been dismissed by Michigan after his recent misdemeanor assault charges.
Michigan wide receiver Csont'e York has officially gone from suspended to dismissed in the wake of his pending assault charges.
Police released a video last week they say shows York punching a man outside the Ann Arbor bar Scorekeepers in an incident July 18. The victim reportedly suffered multiple jaw fractures, and York -- suspended by Brady Hoke in early August for "failing to meet team standards" -- now faces two counts of assault and battery and one of aggravated assault.
Hoke made York's unsusprising dimissal official Monday night. His full statement:
Csont’e York has been dismissed from the Michigan football program. Representing the University of Michigan is a privilege and, while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it’s better for everyone if that happens somewhere else. Overall, I have been proud of how responsible our team has been this offseason and how hard they’ve worked to prepare for the season.
A sophomore and former three-star recruit from Harper Woods, Mich., York did not catch a pass during his freshman season in 2013.
