Iowa Running Back Johnson Dismissed from Team
A series of arrests in the past week led to Johnson's departure from the program.
Another Iowa Hawkeye running back has departed prior to graduation.
Iowa Coach Kirk Ferentz announced on Wednesday that sophomore running back De'Andre Johnson would be dismissed from the team after being arrested twice in three days last week.
"I am disappointed that things didn't work out better for De'Andre," Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said in a statement. "We wish him all the best moving forward."
Here is a link to Johnson's profile on Hawkeyesports with info on his limited amount of playing time so far. Johnson's departure further depletes an already depleted running back position at Iowa, that has seen players leave due to transfers, injuries, and arrests.
