Purdue dismisses Curry, adds two assistants

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Purdue has dismissed wide receiver Arsenio Curry from the team and added two assistants to the football staff.

Curry, a junior college transfer who had two receptions in nine games last season, was booted for "habitual apathy towards team policies and procedures," according to a team spokesman.

Message: Don't slack off around new Boilermakers head coach Danny Hope.

The 6-foot-4, 217-pound Curry was expected to be a key contributor in 2008 along with fellow juco Aaron Valentin, who had 11 receptions, including two touchdowns.

Purdue also hired Nick Cavallo, a former defensive end with the team, as a graduate assistant. Cavallo played at Purdue from 2002-06. Former Purdue defensive tackle Jermaine Guynn is now a graduate assistant strength and conditioning coach, working with the football team.
