07/17/17 - Oregon WR Carrington off team following DUI arrest...The Oregon Ducks dismissed Darren Carrington from the football team after the wide receiver's DUI arrest on July 1. "I have visited with Darren Carrington and informed him that he is no longer a member of our program," Ducks coach Willie Taggart said in release sent by the university on Friday. "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." Oregon had indefinitely suspended Carrington after police stopped him in downtown Eugene. Carrington, about to enter his fifth season, was projected to be Oregon's top wide receiver. He led the team with 606 receiving yards and was second with 43 receptions in 2016 while averaging 17.1 yards per reception with 15 touchdowns during his career. The precedent was set when Oregon moved to fire co-offensive coordinator David Reaves within hours of his January arrest on a similar DUII charge that also originated in downtown Eugene. Reaves later resigned in February. - The Sports Xchange
