Auburn dismisses receiver D'haquille Williams from team
AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn has dismissed senior wide receiver D'haquille Williams from the team.
Coach Gus Malzahn announced the decision Monday night. Malzahn says he gave Williams "the chance to prove himself." But he added there must be consequences "when individuals fail to meet the expectations of our program."
Malzahn didn't elaborate.
Williams was having a disappointing season after coming in rated by NFL draft analysts as one of the nation's top receiver prospects. He had 12 catches for 147 yards and one touchdown.
Williams returned for his senior season after the junior college transfer made 45 catches for 730 yards.
He was suspended for the Outback Bowl and again for nearly a week early in preseason camp.
Auburn opened the season ranked sixth nationally but has already lost twice.
