Dyer Finds Home At Prairie View
Michael Dyer, the troubled and traveled running back has found his third, and hopefully for him, final home.
Dyer announced via his twitter account he is transferring to Prairie View A&M of the SWAC.
Dyer, who was the Most Valuable Player for Auburn as a freshman in their BCS National Championship victory, left the school after his sophomore season when he was suspended from the Chik-Fil-A bowl by Tigers’ head coach Gene Chizik.
He then followed Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Mahzahn to Arkansas State and applied for a hardship waiver to play immediately for the Red Wolves of the Sun Belt Conference. But Mahzahn, who replaced Hugh Freese as head coach, dismissed Dyer from the team, stemming from an arrest in March.
Dyer was written a citation for speeding, but was not arrested despite having drugs and a gun in his car. The Arkansas State Trooper who stopped Dyer has since been fired.
