The saga of Pitt Panthers star wideout Tyler Boyd has come to an end, as a judge sentenced him to probation earlier today. Boyd was charged with DUI and will now enter a program for “non-violent first time offenders,” as was reported by Adam Brandolph of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Boyd will be on probation for a year and will also have to take safe driving classes. His license was also suspended for three months and he is responsible for all court costs. The charge may be expunged from his record upon completion of the program.
Boyd was suspended from all team activities for a month upon being arrested, but was recently reinstated. Given how he has 163 receptions for 2,435 yards and 15 touchdowns in two seasons with the team, with his work on special teams being an added bonus, his teammates are surely happy to have him back as the first season under former Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi is set to begin.
Pitt opens the season at Heinz Field against Youngstown State on September 5.
