Missouri Tigers coach Gary Pinkel announced on Monday that wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team policies.
Pinkel had this to say:
“It’s unfortunate, but it’s the right thing to do for our football program, for the athletic department, and also for Dorial,” Gary Pinkel said in a statement. “We have high standards related to the expectations that come along with being a Missouri Tiger, and Dorial has not met those recently. Representing Mizzou and our fans is a privilege, and we’ll work with him during this process. It’s been disappointing to have this, and other issues which have taken place lately. It’s frustrating, because we work very hard to instill responsibility and discipline in our young men so that our program represents Mizzou the right way. These actions aren’t representative of those expectations, and we are addressing these issues head on.”
In 2013, Green-Beckham caught 59 passes for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns. Shortly after the season ended, he was arrested in a car which contained marijuana
on January 11th.
