Well, that certainly didn’t take long.
Very early this morning, Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell was arrested on three charges, including two involving a weapon that were labeled as felonies. Less than 14 hours after being booked into jail, he’s now ex-Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell.
In a statement, head coach Mark Richt announced that the sophomore back has been dismissed from the UGA football program. Also in his statement? No specific mention of Crowell.
“We have a dedicated and committed group of men who are working hard to prepare for the coming season,” said Richt in a statement. “Our total focus will be directed toward the team and this effort.”
The dismissal ends an up-and-down 16 months for Crowell in Athens since signing with UGA as a five-star recruit last February, highlighted by a team-leading 850 yards rushing as a true freshman and lowlighted by two in-season suspensions as well as today’s final straw for Richt and the program.
