Wide Receiver Csont’e York Dismissed From Michigan Football Team

ANN ARBOR (AP) — Michigan wide receiver Csont’e York, who is facing assault charges, has been dismissed from the team.

Coach Brady Hoke says in a statement Monday that while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it’s better for everyone if that occurs somewhere else.

Online court records showed York was charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery. The charges are all misdemeanors and are related to a July 18 incident.

York appeared in one game as a reserve wide receiver as a freshman last season.
