According to the Associated Press, North Texas first-year head coach Dan McCarney has dismissed wide receiver Darius Carey from the team. Carey was dismissed for failing to live up "to the standards and expectations set for the program". This means that the Mean Green will have to replace their leading receiver from 2010.
Carey finished 2010 with 38 receptions for 524 yards and five touchdowns after catching 57 passes as a freshman in 2009. For a program looking to bounce back from a bad 2010, this is a tough blow to absorb at this point in the summer.
