This past weekend, the Oklahoma Sooners enjoyed another win on the 2013 season, this time over a resilient Kansas State team that put up a tremendous fight.
In that contest, they came out with the win despite missing senior running back Damien Williams, who had been previously suspended by head coach Bob Stoops for a violation of team rules. That violation was undisclosed.
Now, according to ESPN’s Jake Trotter, Stoops has announced that Williams’ career with the Sooners is over as he has been dismissed from the team completely:

Williams, who was a JUCO transfer, finishes up his career in Norman with 1,449 yards and 18 touchdowns on 290 carries. This season he had 553 yards on 114 carries with seven scores. Those seven touchdowns led all running backs on the team.
Earlier in the season, Williams also missed a game against Tulsa due to a violation, so there was definitely some sort of pattern of transgressions here that led Stoops to finally say that enough was enough.
