Michael Dyer has to follow strict zero tolerance policy at Louisville

Before playing for the Louisville Cardinals, it has been reported that new transfer, Michael Dyer, must sign some sort of behavior contract. He will also be under a zero-tolerance policy while attending the school.

The reason behind this behavior contract and strict policy is because of Dyer’s past. He was using synthetic marijuana, and was in possession of a gun that just so happened to be used in a 2011 robbery. Louisville wants no part of the illegal actions that consumed the ex-Auburn running back’s past. They are looking to the future, and are excited to have Dyer on their roster. Coach Charlie Strong is very optimistic about Michael Dyer, saying,

I can’t change his past, but only hope to help build on his future,

For me, it took a while to just really put it all together,  didn’t want to bring a young man into this program with what we already have built and be afraid that’s he’s going to tear that down. But I’m not worried about that.

Louisville other RBs, Senorise Perry and Dominique  Brown are both recovering from knee injuries, so the addition of Dyer could be a powerful one. Throw in a great QB like Terry Bridgewater, and the Louisville Cardinals are looking to be a possible powerhouse for the upcoming college football season.
