Running back Michael Dyer thought he would be able to save his career at Arkansas State. The former Auburn running back transferred to Arkansas State after former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn became head coach.
However, Dyer is looking for a new team now, which would be his third team in just a year. Dyer has been kicked off the Arkansas State football team.
He was reportedly dismissed after violating team rules.

“I am truly disappointed that it didn’t work out here at ASU for Mike,” said Red Wolves head coach Malzahn. “I wish Mike nothing but the best in the future.”
Recently, there were indications that Dyer was considering a transfer to the Division II level in order to play this upcoming season. He stated that he would redshirt the 2012 season and play for the Red Wolves in 2013, which will not happen now.
Dyer is facing limited options now, as the NCAA has a double-transfer rule, which will affect where he could go. Teams are going to stay away from him now, but somebody would likely take a chance on him.
He appeared in 12 games with the Tigers during the 2011 season. He had 242 carries for 1,242 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.
He also had two receptions for seven yards.
