UConn: Lyle McCombs off team
UConn announced Wednesday that the 22-year-old, 5-foot-8, red-shirt senior from Staten Island, New York, is off the team, but will finish school this summer and get his degree.
Coach Bob Diaco says being on the team is a privilege, and with that privilege come responsibilities and expectations. He didn't elaborate.
McCombs is the fourth-leading rusher in UConn history with 2,681 yards. He led the team in rushing the past three seasons.
McCombs' problems have included an on-campus fight in January, a 2012 breach of peace arrest and a 10-week suspension in 2011 after marijuana was found in his dorm room.
