Michael Dyer, former national title game hero for Auburn and current college football free agent, is electing to sit out the entire 2012 season after a rash of off-field incidents have limited his ability to not get kicked off of football teams:
Former Auburn RB Michael Dyer plans to go to class and sit out 2012 but return to CFB in 2013 and not enter NFL Draft, per family— Joe Schad (@schadjoe) August 15, 2012
In the course of one offseason, Dyer's had two break-ups with college football programs - he left the aforementioned Tigers of a Auburn after unspecified violations caused him to miss the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, and was booted from Arkansas State for the old hand gun / speeding / weed trio.
Dyer intended on playing for ASU because of its proximity to his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, and new head coach Gus Mahlzahn, his former offensive coordinator at Auburn. Schad is also reporting that Dyer plans to enroll at a school near Little Rock for the coming academic year.
