Courtesy Arkansas State/HANNAH DOLLE Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer, who transferred from Auburn, looks for running room in the Red Wolves spring game at ASU Stadium in Jonesboro. ASU announced Sunday evening that Dyer has been dismissed from the team for violating team rules.

Michael Dyer's career with Arkansas State is over before playing a game.

The university released a statement shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday evening announcing that the former Little Rock Christian and Auburn running back has been dismissed from the team for "violating team rules."

“I am truly disappointed that it didn’t work out here at ASU for Mike,” ASU head coach Gus Malzahn said in a statement.  “I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future.”

The release also stated that the university has no further comment.

Dyer transferred into the Red Wolves program for the spring semester and participated in spring drills. Recently, Dyer was denied a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately for Arkansas State and would be forced to redshirt the 2012 season.

In his previous two seasons at Auburn, Dyer combined to rush for 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns while helping the Tigers win the 2010 BCS National Championship. Malzahn was the offensive coordinator for Auburn in Dyer's two seasons on the team.

This is "Breaking News?" Was it really important enough to spam 1000's of people that another Prima Dona college football player screwed the pooch? Slow news day, huh?

Doesn't "violating team rules" these days usually mean drugs, esp. marijuana?

Well, at least now he'll have more time to concentrate on his studies in electrical engineering and philosophy.

Well, at least ASU didn't drop its player standards like it did its coaching ones when it hired Gus the Egomaniac...

Traitor should have never left the state to go play for a non-Arkansas team. The prodigal son needs to leave this state for good!

Good riddance. Who needs him? Unfortunately this loser will likely wind up making millions off the NFL.
