Vanderbilt has dismissed WR Chris Boyd after pleading guilty to a lesser charge of helping cover up an alleged aggravated rape committed by Vandy players. He will avoid a felony conviction and prison, in exchange for testimony against the four players involved.

“Vanderbilt’s athletic administration, in conjunction with its head football coach, today dismissed Chris Boyd from the university’s football team and athletic program. The action came after an ongoing review that included information disclosed during a hearing Sept. 13 in Davidson County Criminal Court. “The review concluded that Mr. Boyd’s admitted actions are clearly inconsistent with the high standards of behavior expected of our student-athletes.”

Have to give it to Vandy's admins and to Coach James Franklin, they don't screw around when it comes to inappropriate behavior. Cheers to them.
