Auburn has dismissed WR Kyle Davis from the team for breaking team rules, head coach Gus Malzahn has revealed.

“Anytime as a head coach a player has to be dismissed, that hurts,” Malzahn told the press today. “We’ve got a lot of great kids. Anytime that happens, it’s just another opportunity for someone else. So that’s the way I look at it.”

It wasn’t Auburn’s first dismissal of the year. Backup QB Sean White was booted for public intoxication. In another blow for the Tigers – former five-star DE Byron Cowart also left the program due to a lack of playing time and issues with his mother’s health.

Davis hadn’t had the most productive years, receiving just 7 passes for 210 yards. He didn’t make the LSU trip, which showed a sign that he was in Malzahn’s doghouse.

In a situation that seems to eerily echo Georgia’s under Mark Richt, Gus Malzahn’s team has lost 14 players through transfer or dismissal since the end of the 2016 season.

OUR TAKE: We don’t know if Malzahn’s lost control of the Auburn program, or suddenly he decided that he wasn’t going to put up with any crap from self-entitled players. Of course, with the loss at LSU the fans will probably want to say that Malzahn had “lost control of things”, but whatever way the fanbase swings, there’s one thing for certain: Davis’ dismissal is hardly good news for Auburn.
