Auburn WR Duke Williams Has Been Dismissed From The Program

Wide receiver D'haquille "Duke" Williams has been dismissed from the Auburn program by head coach Gus Malzahn, it was announced Monday evening.

In a release on the Tigers' official website, Malzahn provided a brief statement on the decision.

"When individuals fail to meet the expectations of our program, there has to be consequences," Malzahn said. "I gave D’haquille the chance to prove himself. I am disappointed that it did not work out."

A junior college transfer, Williams displayed big time talent but also a propensity for getting in trouble during his time at AU. He recorded 12 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown in five games this season after producing 45 receptions for 730 yards and five touchdowns last fall.

The rough sledding for the Tigers in 2015 just got a lot rougher.
