Arizona dismisses receiver Wright

3/2/2011

Arizona won't be Buggin' in 2011.

Senior receiver William "Bug" Wright has been dismissed from the team, according to the Tucson Citizen.

"Just a violation of team policies and rules,” coach Mike Stoops told the Citizen. “It’s been a chronic problem that hasn’t rectified itself.”

Wright caught 25 passes 294 yards and two touchdowns last season, but he was in and out of Stoops' doghouse throughout his career, including a suspension last season.

The good news for Arizona is receiver is the team's deepest position, with the top-five pass catchers back in 2011. Stoops told the Citizen that sophomore Richard Morrison, a converted quarterback, and speedy redshirt freshman Garic Wharton will get the first shot at replacing Wright at inside receiver. Morrison had 19 receptions last season, including six in the Alamo Bowl.
