Report: NCSU dismisses Mustafa Greene
By Heather Dinich
NC State running back Mustafa Greene has been dismissed from the team, according to the Wilmington Star News.
NC State coach Tom O’Brien told reporters after the Wolfpack's 20-18 win over Maryland that Greene, along with redshirt freshman wide receiver Tyrrell Burriss, have been dismissed.
“They are no longer on the football team,” O’Brien said, according to the report. “They weren’t champions in the classroom or in the community. They’re not going to get the opportunity to play on this football team, so they will no longer be with us.”
Greene was in the midst of serving an indefinite suspension, and he has had a turbulent career filled with more injuries and drama than actual production. When he did play, though, he showed a lot of potential. It's unfortunate for NC State and for Greene that his potential wasn't realized.
