Idaho will not welcome back WR Dezmon Epps


Idaho Vandals coach Paul Petrino announced today that suspended receiver Dezmon Epps will not be welcomed back to the team despite local authorities deciding not to press charges against him in relation to a domestic dispute between himself and his girlfriend.

Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported the development on Twitter.

Thus, it appears that Epps’ career in Moscow is officially coming to a close. All in all, his legacy there will be as a player who had talent, but could not stay out of trouble off the field. His legal issues away from football have ranged from theft to DWI, and he was even kicked off the team for the 2014 campaign. He was reinstated in the spring and was doing well for Idaho this year, catching 61 passes for 757 yards and two touchdowns.

But one can only have so many chances, and Epps has run out of them with Petrino. He could easily transfer to another program or enter the NFL Draft, but his prospects there are slim.

The NFL is taking a strong stance on players who can’t stay out of trouble and teams could be hesitant to take on Epps unless he can prove that his issues are behind him once and for all.

Campus Sports will update Epps’ story as any new information becomes available.
