Auburn Receiver Kyle Davis Dismissed from Program

Kyle Davis has been dismissed from the Auburn football team after a year and a half long career on the plains. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn made the announcement on Tuesday. “I just want to let everybody know that Kyle Davis has been dismissed from our team for breaking team rules,” Malzahn said. “We wish him nothing but the best moving forward.”

According to The Plainsman, Davis missed Auburn’s entire spring practice for “personal reasons” and was suspended for the Tigers’ season opener against Georgia Southern. He was again suspended Saturday, as the sophomore did not play in Auburn’s 27-23 loss at the hands of LSU.

Davis is the third player to leave the Auburn team this season. Backup quarterback Sean White was dismissed after his arrest for public intoxication, while junior defensive lineman Byron Cowart transferred from the program.

“Any time as a head coach a player has to be dismissed, that hurts,” Malzahn said. “Every situation is different. We have a lot of great kids on this team and any time that happens it’s another opportunity for someone else. That’s just how I look at it.”

Davis finished his Auburn career with 19 catches for 458 yards and two touchdowns. He had seven catches for 210 yards this season.
