OSU linebacker Odiari dismissed from team

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State linebacker Alex Odiari was dismissed from the football team on Monday for breaking team rules, Cowboys coach Mike Gundy confirmed.

Gundy said Odiari, a backup who was not on the two-deep depth chart released last week, was not dismissed because of his arrest over the summer. Odiari was arrested in a Stillwater bar in July for fake ID, being underage in a bar and an alleged violation of a protective order from a former girlfriend. The charges related to the protective order were dropped.

"It's an unfortunate situation that he broke our team rules,” Gundy said of the 6-foot, 235-pound junior from Carrollton, Texas. "It doesn't have anything to do with what happened downtown. He's clear with those legal problems, from what I understand.”

Gundy said he is unsure whether Odiari will transfer.
