Ohio State Football Coach Urban Meyer Dismisses Two Players
New Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has dismissed two players for off-the-field problems.
Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed yesterday that defensive backs Dominic Clarke and DerJuan Gambrell have been released from their scholarships.
Clarke was a redshirt sophomore from Frederick, Md., but was charged with drunken driving and also had been arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct after allegedly discharging a BB gun on campus. No one was hurt in the latter incident.
Gambrell is a freshman from Toledo and was also discharged for a “violation of team rules,” but Ohio State did not specify what that violation was.
