UConn: running back McCombs 'no longer with team'
STORRS, Conn. (AP) University of Connecticut officials say running back Lyle McCombs is no longer on the football team and they're not saying why, but he has had a string of off-the-field problems.
UConn announced Wednesday that the 22-year-old, 5-foot-8, red-shirt senior from Staten Island, New York, is off the team, but will finish school this summer and get his degree.
Coach Bob Diaco says being on the team is a privilege, and with that privilege come responsibilities and expectations. He didn't elaborate.
