Virginia Dismisses Mike Brown from Football Team

Posted: Updated:

Senior cornerback Mike Brown is no longer a member of Virginia's football team, resolving a question of whether or not he would be back after he was arrested in February for stealing over $3,000 worth of stereo equipment from a car and then attempting to sell it on eBay.

The University of Virginia issued a release Sunday afternoon with the news that Brown was no longer a member of the Cavalier football team.

Since his arrest, Brown was a "non-participating" member of the team, but is no longer affiliated with the program.
