Senior safety Nico Law has left the Iowa football program, both he and head coach Kirk Ferentz announced Wednesday. Law, who was cited for disorderly conduct by Iowa City police on June 7, made the announcement he was leaving via his Instagram and Facebook accounts, which was later confirmed in a press release by Ferentz.

“Nico has decided to transfer from the University of Iowa and complete his athletic and academic careers elsewhere,” Ferentz said in a statement issued by the UI. “We wish him the best with his decision.”

Law was listed as the No. 2 strong safety on Iowa’s 2-deep behind fellow senior John Lowdermilk after spring football. In three seasons, Law registered 44 career tackles for the Hawkeyes. As a sophomore, he started the last four games of the 2012 season, one in which he recorded 28 of those 44 tackles.

Because Law burned his freshman redshirt in 2011, he will be able to use that redshirt wherever he transfers this upcoming season and use up his final season of eligibility in 2015.
