Cody Journell is no longer a member of the Virginia Tech football team.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer announced on Wednesday that Journell had been dismissed from the team due to a violation of team policies. Beamer also said he will have no further comment on Journell's dismissal.

While it's unknown what Journell did to be kicked off the team, he was suspended earlier this season for an unspecified violation of team rules, and was suspended for the team for seven months after being arrested on a breaking and entering charge before Virginia Tech's Sugar Bowl loss to end the 2011 season.

Journell was 44-for-58 on field goals and 101-for-106 on extra points as a Hokie.
