The Auburn Tigers have made a decision on the fate of quarterback Sean White.
After being arrested for public intoxication early Sunday morning, he was officially dismissed from the team on Monday. AL.com was the first to report his dismissal which was later confirmed by Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn:
White was a touted four-star quarterback prospect in 2014 and one of the headlining names for the program’s class that year. At the top of the depth chart last season, he passed for 1,679 yards and nine touchdowns. He lost his job with the first team this season to Jarrett Stidham, a transfer from Baylor.
White’s dismissal is the the final chapter in a growing list of disciplinary actions that started to define his college career. He was already serving a two-game suspension to start this season for an undisclosed violation of team rules. His latest arrest was “on view,” meaning the arresting officers weren’t responding to an existing warrant or call of a disturbance. He was booked into the jail at 3:28 am and released later that morning on his own recognizance.
