Charlie Strong Dismisses Ninth Player

The University of Texas football program continued to clean house on Tuesday as  head coach Charlie Strong announced the dismissal of junior offensive tackle Kennedy Estelle.

Estelle now becomes the ninth player dismissed from the 2014 team and it is believed his original punishment stemmed from a violation of an undisclosed team rule after the team’s season opening victory over North Texas. Both Estelle and fellow starting tackle Desmond Harrison were suspended for three games following the win.

Estelle played in 16 games last season, starting nine before being suspended for the Longhorns’ Alamo Bowl game because he was academically ineligible.

The full list of dismissed players besides Estelle, includes former starters Kendall Sanders and Joe Bergeron, and backups Leroy Scott, Chet Moss, Montrel Meander, Jalen Overstreet, Chevoski Collins and Deoundrei Davis.
