The university and the athletic department issued statements announcing Brown's dismissal.

"Due to a violation of team rules, LaDarius Brown has been removed from our football program," the athletic department said in a release. "This is very unfortunate. We provide our student-athletes with all the guidelines and principles to be successful on and off the field. At some point, they have to govern themselves. It's a sad day for everyone."

The school's statement read, "University students, like everyone else, face various choices each day. TCU tries to assist students by offering them a variety of educational resources to help make wise choices. In general, if a student is alleged to be in violation of the University's student code of conduct, they can face a hearing and then a judicial process that may result in disciplinary action from the University above and beyond any legal consequences the student might face." Last season as a sophomore, Brown played in all 12 games and had 36 receptions, which tied for the team lead, and 393 receiving yards. He had seven career receiving touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange
