Report: Texas RB Joe Bergeron 5th UT player dismissed in 2 days Published: July 25, 2014

The morning after dismissing four scholarship players for various reasons, Texas coach Charlie Strong sent another one packing Friday — running back Joe Bergeron.

A source close to the football team confirmed to the Austin American-Statesman that Bergeron was dismissed for an undisclosed violation of team rules. This was after news broke late Thursday that backup running back Jalen Overstreet and defensive back Chevoski Collins were also dismissed.

The Texas athletic department has not officially confirmed any of these dismissals.

This comes on the heels of Strong publically suspending two Texas plays Thursday who were charged with felony sexual assault.
