Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz released a statement Tuesday saying that sophomore running back Marcus Binns is no longer on the team. The announcement comes one day after The Cedar Rapids Gazette reported Binns had been cited by Coralville police on fifth-degree theft charges at Dillard’s inside the Coral Ridge Mall.

Marcus, who is the younger brother of former Iowa defensive end Broderick Binns, didn’t appear in any games for the Hawkeyes in 2011 after redshirting in 2010.

“Due to injuries, Marcus Binns has not been an active member of the Iowa football program for over one calendar year,” Ferentz said. “Following the completion of spring practice, it was determined Marcus was no longer a part of the football team.”
