Darryl Stonum has been kicked off the Michigan football team.
He was dismissed for a violation of team rules. He was sentenced to 10 days in jail earlier this month.
In June 2011, he was sentenced to two years of probation for operating a vehicle while being impaired. The team suspended him after his sentence and head coach Brady Hoke later red shirted him.
The redshirt left him with one season left. He did practice with the team during this past season.
“I love Darryl and wish him nothing but the absolute best,” coach Brady Hoke said Tuesday in a statement released by the school. “However, there is a responsibility and a higher standard you must be accountable to as a University of Michigan football student-athlete. That does not and will not change. It’s unfortunate because I believe he has grown a great deal as a person since the beginning of the season. My hope is that maturing process continues.”
