Thearon Collier to meet with coaches Monday
By Heather Dinich
Miami receiver Thearon Collier will meet with coach Randy Shannon on Monday to discuss his future with the team, and the Miami Herald has reported defensive end Steven Wesley has been dismissed from the team.
Lotta action for the Canes before they begin camp on Thursday.
According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Wesley is expected to be ruled academically ineligible and will transfer. Collier has some personal issues he has to deal with, but this could be the last straw for him.
The Canes are deep enough at defensive end that they'll be fine without Wesley, but Collier has been an impact player on special teams. He ran a punt back 60 yards for a touchdown against Virginia and ran another one back 61 yards for a score against Florida A&M. He became the first Hurricane to have multiple punt returns for touchdowns in a season since 2004.
