Yet, after being kicked off the Auburn football team after their 2012 Chick-fil-a Bowl, he hasn’t played a snap since. But, he could be returning to the game soon if everything goes well.

Dyer, who has bounced around from Auburn to Arkansas State, is expected to enroll at Louisville next week. Once arriving, he is expected to talk to head coach Charlie Strong about joining the football team.

“He’s excited to have an opportunity to resume his career,” Fitz Hill, the Arkansas Baptist College President, told USA TODAY Sports. “Many people doubted that Michael would ever make this comeback, and it’s here.”

Typically, when players transfer, they have to sit out a year due to NCAA rules. But Dyer is not expected to sit out after missing the entire 2012 season.

He needs to get his head straight in order to be a top running back again. Once he can do that, his on-the-field skills will shine once again.

In his two years at Auburn in 2010 and 2011, he amassed 2,335 yards in his career at the school. He ranks 10th all-time in rushing at the college, while having 15 touchdowns.

Shortly after being kicked off the Auburn team, he joined the Arkansas State team. But he did not play for them after being pulled over in March 2012 for speeding, where they found a gun and marijuana in the car.

After being kicked off the Arkansas State team for the incident, he attended Arkansas Baptist College, where he received his Associate Degree. He completed 46 credit hours in three 3 semesters.

He was eligible for the 2013 NFL draft, but went undrafted.
