Iowa sophomore running back De'Andre Johnson was dismissed from the team Wednesday by coach Kirk Ferentz.
"I am disappointed that things didn't work out better for De'Andre," said Ferentz in a statement issued by the school. "We wish him all the best moving forward."
The coach initially had suspended Johnson on Sunday after he was arrested for the second time in three days. According to University Heights police, Johnson, 20, was arrested Saturday and charged with eluding.
Johnson was cited by Iowa City police Thursday for disorderly house after it said it had received complaints of a loud party.
