The Vanderbilt Commodores had a tremendous amount of promise entering the 2013 college football season, and much of that had to do with returning one of the most dynamic receiving duos in the nation in Jordan Mathews and Chris Boyd. Both players were All-SEC performers in 2012, and both bypassed opportunities to enter the NFL Draft last year, and those two being the two biggest producers of offense returning for the Commordores, they were going to both need big years in order for Vanderbilt continue their ascension up the SEC ladder.
Well, Matthews has lived up to his end of the bargain, but Boyd hasn’t even taken to the field as he continues to be involved in a rape investigation, and now, Vanderbilt has announced that Boyd has been dismissed from the team entirely.
“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.”
