Two Pitt players dismissed following arrest last week

On Friday, three Pitt players — linebacker Eric Williams (pictured, No. 49), tight end Andrew Carswell and defensive linemen Khanyin Moslesy-Smith — were suspended after they were allegedly detained in a drug bust last Thursday night involving a SWAT team.

On Tuesday, Panthers coach Paul Chryst took another step and kicked Carswell and Williams off the team. Moslesy-Smith was not mentioned specifically in the release, but it’s assumed he’s still serving an indefinite suspension. Additionally, Chryst announced that freshman quarterback Tra’Von Chapman has been suspended for “a weekend incident away from campus.”

Williams finished fifth on the team in tackles last season with 52. He also had 4.5 tackles for loss, an interception and two fumble recoveries. Carswell had 13 receptions for 163 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 10 games.

    Congrats to the coach. All schools should do this their so-called student athletes, most of whom are only there to play a sport, and not become degreed. Send them back to where they came, and try to be the ‘big man’ they thought they were…………and, because I’ll bet that they drop out of school, good luck finding a job……no one pumps gas and cleans windshields now days !

    If this story were about an SEC school, the word “dismissed” wouldn’t occur.

    But then again, when did SWAT recently bust up on some unsuspecting SEC players?

    SECheat wouldn’t have done this”

    Where do you come up with Cheat? Other than the Cam year (he got paid, it was obvious) when has there been anything about the SEC paying players? I’ve seen Oregon and Miami in the news for paying recruits, but nothing from the SEC.

    Once again, sorry your team got beat by a SEC team. It’s not Nick Saban’s fault his 2nd and 3rd stringers are better than most teams starters. It’s easy to recruit when you pump hundreds of millions of dollars into facilities and, you know, win.

    Kudos to Paul Chryst! Hopefully he cleans the program up and sets a standard that will bring in high quality athlete’s who actually respect the fact they’ve been given an “opportunity”.

    Not a good thing with the Noles coming to town for the first game.

    Congratulations to Coach Chryst. He did the right thing here unloading a drug-selling thug! Pitt has the right idea…..only those wishing to actually EARN a degree while playing a sport at the D-1 level will be considered. Thugs and “gangstas” need not apply….
