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.

Michigan opens its 2014 season against Appalachian State Aug. 30.
