Arrested Alabama players no longer in school

Posted: Updated:

University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban announced Wednesday the four players arrested in connection with a campus robbery in early February are no longer associated with the football team.

Furthermore, a university spokesman issued a statement confirming Brent Calloway, Tyler Hayes, Eddie Williams and D.J. Pettway are no longer enrolled in school.

Saban issued the following statement:

"Based on all the information we've received and gone through in trying to determine the future of the four guys that got in trouble, those guys are no longer associated with the football program," said Saban. "Their actions do not reflect the spirit and character that we want our organization to reflect. It's obviously very disappointing and unacceptable what happened. I've been really proud that over the last five years our team has done a very good job of their personal responsibility and how they represent the university, what they have done in the community, the classroom and on the field.

"We are going to continue to do as much as we can in personal development and character development in our program with education to try to help our guys have a chance to be more successful in life. Some people learn by words, some people learn by consequences, some people can't learn."
