COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Former Hillcrest student and Mizzou wide-receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has been indefinitely suspended from the program for a violation of team policies.

The decision was made by University of Missouri Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel in consultation with Director of Athletics Mike Alden and goes into effect immediately. This concludes all practices and team activities for Green-Beckham.

Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel’s statement according to an official press release:

“It’s unfortunate, but it’s the right thing to do for our football program, for the athletic department, and also for Dorial,” said Pinkel. “We have high standards related to the expectations that come along with being a Missouri Tiger, and Dorial has not met those recently. Representing Mizzou and our fans is a privilege, and we’ll work with him during this process. It’s been disappointing to have this, and other issues which have taken place lately. It’s frustrating, because we work very hard to instill responsibility and discipline in our young men so that our program represents Mizzou the right way. These actions aren’t representative of those expectations, and we are addressing these issues head on.”
