Auburn dismisses Duke Williams from the team in his second season
By Charles Goldberg
AUBURN, Ala. ― Auburn has dismissed receiver Duke Williams, coach Gus Malzahn announced Monday night.
"When individuals fail to meet the expectations of our program, there has to be consequences," Malzahn said. "I gave D’haquille the chance to prove himself. I am disappointed that it did not work out."
Williams had 12 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown in five games this season. He had 45 catches for 730 yards and five touchdowns last season after arriving as a junior college transfer. He was suspended before the Outback Bowl last season for a violation of team rules.
Auburn has an open date this week. The Tigers' next game is at Kentucky on a Thursday night, Oct. 15, on ESPN.
