In 2011, Daniel Cobb started more than half of Texas Tech’s games on the defensive side of the ball.
In 2012, the linebacker won’t be afforded the opportunity to match or exceed that total.
Red Raiders sports information official Blayne Beal tweeted Sunday evening that Cobb has been dismissed from the team for, of course, violating unspecified team rules. No further information or details were given.
Since coming to Lubbock as a three-star member of Tech’s 2009 recruiting class, Cobb had played in 21 games. He started seven games in 2011 and finished third on the team in tackles.
However, Cobb was not listed on the Red Raiders’ most recent two-deep depth chart, which in retrospect was a significant sign that the redshirt junior might not be long for the program.
