Exiting spring practice last year and prior to the start of summer camp, Titus Howard was projected as one of Pittsburgh’s stating cornerbacks.
A year and a half later, the defensive back’s time at Pitt has come to an end.
The Panthers announced earlier this week that Howard has been dismissed from the football program by new head coach Pat Narduzzi. Other than the standard violation of unspecified team rules, no reason for the dismissal was given.
Howard was just a two-star member of Pitt’s 2013 recruiting class, but still played in 11 games as a true freshman. In early August, it was announced that he had been suspended for the entire 2014 season, once again for unspecified violations of team rules.
In addition to that personnel news, the school also confirmed that quarterback Trey Anderson and defensive lineman Devin Cook will not use their final season of eligibility.
Anderson appeared in eight games during his Pitt career, three of which came last season. He completed 25-of-53 passes for 263 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. Cook played in 26 games the past three seasons, including 10 in 2014.
Cook has already received his degree from Pitt, while Anderson is slated to graduate this spring.
Finally, Narduzzi also confirmed that offensive lineman Connor Hayes and defensive end Luke Maclean have decided to transfer out of the football program. Maclean played in four games as a true freshman last season while Hayes took a redshirt his first and only season with the Panthers.
