Now that we know why Auburn Tigers running back Michael Dyer was suspended for last year's Chick-fil-A Bowl -- for allowing his gun to be used in that massive, four-man heist by former teammates -- we should also note Arkansas St. Red Wolves coach Gus Malzahn is accepting him in anyway:
I am fully aware of Mike's circumstances. He knows very well the high standard we have of all our players here at Arkansas State, and I'm confident that he will meet those expectations.
Malzahn was Dyer's offensive coordinator at Auburn. Despite Dyer's admission in court this week that he smoked synthetic weed all the time and was with Antonio Goodwin and three others on the night of their break-in, Malzahn apparently doesn't feel the risk is too great.
Dyer finished third in the SEC in yards from scrimmage last year.
Elsewhere, Goodwin was convicted of first-degree robbery. Trials for the three other players begin this summer.
