De’Andre Johnson is no longer a member of the Iowa football team, head coach Kirk Ferentz said in a release sent Wednesday afternoon.

Johnson, who was a running back entering his sophomore season, was dismissed three days after being suspended from all team activities. Last week, he was charged with both a disorderly house citation and then two days later was arrested on eluding charges by University Heights police.

“I am disappointed that things didn’t work out better for De’Andre,” Ferentz said in a statement. “We wish him all the best moving forward.”

Johnson rushed for 79 yards on 18 carries last season and was listed second on the team’s preseason 2-deep behind sophomore running back Damon Bullock.
