Michigan will be down at least one man when fall practice begins in August. Sophomore slot receiver Justin Feagin, a quarterback much of last season, is no longer with the Wolverines after being dismissed from the team.
"Justin Feagin was dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules Thursday evening," head coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement.
Feagin never threw a pass last season but did line up and take some snaps at quarterback, keeping the ball on straight running plays from the position on most occasions.
The 6-0, 198-pounder was only slated to be a receiver this fall, quarterbacks coach Rod Smith confirmed. Offensive coordinator Calvin Magee said this spring Feagin had work to do -- and plenty of competition -- to earn playing time.
"He's a strong, physical kid who might not have the same quickness and speed as other guys, but has a toughness that is welcome at the position," he said.
