A handful of days after being arrested for breaking the law, Nico Law has apparently decide to break away from the Iowa football program.
In a posting made to his Facebook page this afternoon, the defensive back revealed that his “football is going into a new direction at another university.” Just where that new football home will be is unclear.
Law went on to “thank all the fans, friends, family and Iowa football staff for their support over the years.”
“You will truly be missed. Iowa will always be my 2nd home. Hawk for life!!!” the player added.
In a statement released after Law’s declaration, head coach Kirk Ferentz confirmed the departure.
“Nico has decided to transfer from the University of Iowa and complete his athletic and academic careers elsewhere,” said Ferentz. “We wish him the best with his decision.”
Over the past three years, the senior-to-be has played in all 38 of the Hawkeyes’ games, with four of those being starts. Late last week, Law was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct.
