After being suspended from the team earlier this week, San Jose State Spartans freshman defensive back Bomani Bassette-Hairston has been dismissed from the program. Spartans head coach Ron Caragher reportd Bassette-Hairston’s dismissal in a brief statement, which was reported by Kevin McGuire of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk.
“After a thorough review of the incident, we have determined it is appropriate to dismiss Bomani from the program. We wish Bomani the best in his future,” Caragher said.
Per ABC7, Bassette-Hairston was initially suspended after striking teammate Chad Miller in the head with a skateboard, an incident that caused Miller to be hospitalized. Apparently, Miller was attempting to motivate new freshman through workouts, and one in particular in Bassette-Hairston took offense to his methods. Thus, later that night, he showed up at Miller’s dorm and attacked him with said skateboard.
Due to his foolish actions, Bassette-Hairston becomes the second SJSU freshman to be dismissed from the program this summer, as wideout Kanya Bell Jr. was recently dismissed following a domestic battery charge.
