Dyer Out At Ark State, Pitt State Next...??? (UPDATED With Investigation And Dash Cam Video)


So much for that idea...

Michael Dyer, who was dismissed from Auburn for a violation of team rules, has been dismissed from the Arkansas State squad for violating team rules.

Arkansas State coach Gus Malzahn announced the decision Saturday, saying: "I am truly disappointed that it didn't work out here at ASU for Mike. I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future."

Dyer wasn't eligible to play this season for the Indians Red Wolves after the NCAA denied his request to play immediately at a lesser Division I school.

Draft Board Insider had mentioned previously that Dyer was thinking about a transfer to Pittsburg ((KS)) State in Division II, but that died down over the furor over double transfers in one calendar year.

Now that he has been "dismissed" from Ark State, it will be interesting where he ends up so he can play THIS season, which was his idea this season anyway...

That leaves DII, DIII, or the NAIA... much like Willie Williams who the HQ has seen at Da-U and Union College ((KY))...

Here's Malzahn discussing his now-former tailback a few weeks ago...

MONDAY UPDATE: Arkansas State Police are investigating the March 10 traffic stop where Dyer was pulled over for going 96-in-a-70 where police allegedly found drug paraphernalia in his car. Trooper Royce Denny is now under investigation in connection with the incident with Dyer and Ronnie Wright.

At one point of the dashcam video obtained through a public records request, Denny apparently says, "…Carrying weed with you. Carrying a pistol around. It ain't cool... you got a career ahead of you. You're being a total dumb*** right now. You're being stupid."

Here's the clip, Dyer's interaction is at the 7:00 mark...
