He later confirmed the tweet in a text message to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. A Stephen F. Austin official told the FWST that the school couldn't comment on Wednesday but an announcement was planned for Thursday.
On Tuesday, TCU issued a statement that Fields was still separated from the university after he was charged with assault for an incident with his ex-girlfriend on July 20. According to a university official in the FWST, it was unlikely that Fields would ever return to the university.
The Preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year had a tumultuous TCU career. He missed 10 games because of suspension and injury in 2013 and was the 2012 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year after he had 10 sacks in his first season playing for the Horned Frogs. He also was arrested for marijuana possession in 2012 and earlier this year said he was robbed and beaten. However, he declined to press charges in that incident.
