RB Johnson dismissed by Hawkeyes

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz dismissed running back DeAndre Johnson from the program.

Johnson was suspended Sunday after two arrests in five days.

"I am disappointed that things didn't work out better for De'Andre," Ferentz said. "We wish him all the best moving forward."

Johnson was ticketed for driving 60 mph in a 25 mph zone Saturday and cited for eluding arrest because he didn't immediately yield to officers.

That came after Johnson was issued a citation in Iowa City for maintaining a disorderly house stemming from repeated noise complaints.

Iowa's running back depth is perilous if unproven.

Junior walk-on Andre Dawson and two incoming freshmen -- Greg Garmon and Barkley Hill -- are in the running to start but have everything to prove in fall camp. Hill rushed for 6,127 yards and 89 touchdowns in high school. Garmon was arrested in June and charged with drug paraphernalia possession, but Ferentz said he wasn't suspended because it was his first offense.
