The train rolling out of The Plains continued today as another member of the Auburn football program is now an ex-member of the program.
Unlike quarterback Tyrik Rollison, who is transferring to seek more playing time elsewhere, Dontae Aycock‘s departure is less than voluntary.
According to multiple reports, Aycock has been dismissed by head coach Gene Chizik for — say it with me — violating an unspecified team rule.
Aycock, a four-star member of the Tigers’ 2009 recruiting class, was a redshirt last season but, as noted by the Birmingham News, was slated to be a part of Auburn’s rotation at the running back position.
With the unexpected departure, Michael Dyer, the No. 2 running back in the country in the 2010 class according to Rivals.com, would seem to be in line for in even bigger role during his freshman season as one of the top options behind starter Mario Fannin.
