FRIDAY SPORTS NEWS/Wide receiver officially kicked off Oregon football team following July I DUII accusation

Darren Carrington is no longer with the Oregon football program.

In a move that was no surprise, Ducks coach Willie Taggart on Friday announced that the veteran wide receiver has been dismissed from the program.

Carrington, who has one season of eligibility remaining, was arrested on July 1 at a Eugene McDonald's for suspicion of DUII.

In a statement released by the University of Oregon, Taggart said:

"I have visited with Darren Carrington and informed him that he is no longer a member of our program. We will always consider Darren a Duck and support him in any way we can. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Carrington finishes his Oregon career with 112 catches for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns over three seasons, including two bowl games.

Carrington has had several off-field incidents while at Oregon, including being suspended by the NCAA for the 2014 College Football Playoff title game for failing a drug test.
