According to a report from the Seattle Times, the Washington Huskies have dismissed redshirt freshman defensive back Patrick Enewally from the team following an alleged altercation with a teammate.
Enewally’s dismissal came after he punched a teammate in the face earlier in the week, a team source said.
The reason for the dismissal from the team was originally reported as a violation of team rules, and punching a teammate in the face would certainly fall under that category.
Enewally’s departure hurts also in the sense that new head coach Chris Petersen already has to deal with a depleted secondary. He was one of only four scholarship corners that were on the roster for this upcoming season.
He was one of just four scholarship cornerbacks on the roster this spring, and the Huskies have been practicing with three scholarship safeties.
Washington is beginning the Chris Petersen era this season, following the departure of former head coach Steve Sarkisian to take over his alma mater, the USC Trojans.
This is not how Petersen envisioned his first spring to be going.
