TROY, Ala. — Troy wide receiver Josh Jarboe has been dismissed for violating team rules.

Coach Larry Blakeney told The Dothan Eagle Friday the onetime Oklahoma signee will transfer to Northeast Mississippi Community College, where he can play this season.

Jarboe has twice been cited by university police. The sophomore was cited in January 2009 for misdemeanor harassment and earlier this year for disorderly conduct.

“It was certainly a lot of buildup," Blakeney told The Dothan Eagle. "There were a couple of incidents since camp started that were the straws that broke the camel’s back."

Blakeney didn't elaborate on the camp incidents.

Jarboe came to Troy in 2008 after he was kicked off the Oklahoma team for making a profane Internet video that shows him rapping about guns and killing people.

Blakeney says a couple of incidents occurred during preseason camp that led to his decision.

Jarboe caught 15 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown last season.
