AUBURN -- Auburn football players Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens, Mike McNeil and Dakota Mosley have been dismissed from the football team following their arrest early Friday, announced head coach Gene Chizik.
Head Coach Gene Chizik Statement
"The players arrested in connection with this deeply troubling incident have been permanently dismissed from our football team. While we realize the legal process will run its course and these young men have a right for their case to be heard, playing for Auburn University is an honor and a privilege. It is not a right.
"We hold our student-athletes to a high standard of conduct on and off the field as representatives of Auburn University, and this kind of behavior is not tolerated.
"I am extremely disappointed and embarrassed by the actions of these individuals. I want to personally apologize to all of those who were impacted by this senseless act, including the victims, Auburn University and the Auburn family."
Athletics Director Jay Jacobs Statement
"This type of behavior will not be tolerated at Auburn. I fully support Coach Chizik's swift and decisive action to dismiss these four student-athletes from our football team effective immediately."
