Csont'e York is out, Michigan announced Monday.
York faces three assault charges after sucker-punching a male outside of Scorekeepers in Ann Arbor on July 18. Video was made public this past week, clearly showing York's vicious, unprovoked strike that broke the victim's jaw in three places, knocked out a tooth, and caused breathing difficulty.
Wolverines coach Brady Hoke released a statement explaining his decision, via UM SID Derek Satterfield (@UMichFootball):
“Csont’e York has been dismissed from the Michigan football program. Representing the University of Michigan is a privilege and, while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it’s better for everyone if that happens somewhere else. Overall, I have been proud of how responsible our team has been this offseason and how hard they’ve worked to prepare for the season.”
The 6'1," 191-pound sophomore out of Chandler Park Academy (Detroit) was expected to compete for reps this season. However, the Wolverines are deep at the position and shouldn't miss a beat without their former teammate.
