Arkansas State head football coach Gus Malzahn told a Birmingham radio station running back Michael Dyer isn't expected to suit up for the Red Wolves this coming season.
The Auburn transfer and former Little Rock Christian running back will "likely be out" as a redshirt for the 2012 campaign, retaining his remaining two years of eligibility and getting back on the playing field in 2013.
"As of right now, he still will have to sit out a year, and in the end, that'll probably end up being what it'll end up," Malzahn, who is entering his first season as head coach, said to 97.3 The Zone in Birmingham.
Dyer rushed for 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Tigers, including being named MVP of the BCS National Championship Game in 2010.
