U I Wide Receiver Dezmon Epps dismissed from team

U I Wide Receiver Dezmon Epps dismissed from team
MOSCOW, ID - As the Vandal football team tries to turn around its team from last year, they may have just taken a step back.

University of Idaho senior wide receiver Dezmon Epps has been dismissed from the team for violating team rules. The team's 2013 leading receiver has been in trouble with the law in his one-year on the team after a DUI arrest in April, but there's no word on how much, if any, that incident played a role in his dismissal.

Epps recorded 79 grabs for 980 yards and four touchdowns last season, over 550 yards more than the next closest receiver. Head Coach Paul Petrino said of the dismissal, quote, "We have the highest standards and expectations for our players as student-athletes and citizens. We clearly outline the consequences when these expectations are not met." unquote.
