Washington State football player Tavares Martin Jr. has been dismissed from the program, the university announced on Sunday afternoon. While there were few details, it was announced that Martin was dismissed for a violation of team rules.
The junior wide receiver led the Cougars with 831 receiving yards on the year.
It is also not the first discipline from the program for Martin. The talented pass catcher was suspended one game earlier in the season for skipping practice due to a “temper tantrum.”
I’ve confirmed through a WSU official Tavares Martin Jr. has been dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules. #Cougs have now lost two WRs since the season ended.

The other wide receiver referenced in the report was sophomore Isaiah Johnson-Mack who announced his desire to transfer. However, there is no word on whether Johnson-Mack will be granted his release.
Washington State is currently preparing for a Holiday Bowl matchup with Michigan State.
