One day after learning he would not be arrested for in a burglary investigation from last weekend, today Dorial Green-Beckham was dismissed from the football program at the University of Missouri.
The decision was made by Head Coach Gary Pinkel, in conjunction with Director of Athletics Mike Alden.
â??This decision was made with the best interests of all involved in mind,â?? said Pinkel. â??Dorialâ??s priority going forward needs to be focusing on getting the help he needs. As we have all along, we will continue to do everything we can to assist Dorial and his family. We care deeply about Dorial and his well-being, but hopefully he can benefit from a fresh start.â??
â??We have a high standard of conduct for our student-athletes,â?? said Alden. â??Though we provide the resources and mentoring to all of our student-athletes, we are also responsible to the community at large and to the ideals and values of the University of Missouri. We have determined that this was a necessary step for our football team, athletic department, the University and our community,â?? he said.
Green-Beckham has been arrested twice on drug related charges.
