Texas linebacker Demarco Boyd, who was suspended by the program last July and missed the entire 2018 season, is reportedly no longer with the team.

According to's Anwar Richardson, Boyd and the program have "parted ways." He is expected to remain enrolled in the university and transfer after graduating in December.

Boyd was suspended last season after being charged with misdemeanor assault following a July 4 car crash. His older brother, Longhorns DB Kris Boyd, was also involved in the crash.

He did not face criminal charges, however, and wound up earning first-team All-Big 12 honors and becoming an NFL Draft pick.

A three-star recruit in the 2016 class, Boyd enrolled at UT in January 2016. He redshirted during his first collegiate season.

In 2017, Boyd appeared in four games but did not register any statistics.

Texas is set to open up its 2019 season against Louisiana Tech on August 31.
