BERKELEY -- Senior tailback Covaughn DeBoskie-Johnson has left the California football program.
On Tuesday, head coach Jeff Tedford said that DeBoskie-Johnson is "not with us," and is currently looking for a destination.
"[It's] just for the opportunity to play," Tedford said. "He's graduating this semester, and so he's obviously a senior and to get on the field a little bit more."
DeBoskie-Johnson figured to be buried on the depth chart behind starter Isi Sofele, seniors Mike Manuel and C.J. Anderson, as well as talented youngsters Brendan Bigelow, Darren Ervin and Daniel Lasco, with junior Dasarte Yarnway and sophomore Trajuan Briggs also in the mix.
Tedford said that the Bears will help DeBoskie-Johnson out in his quest to find a new home, where he would have one year to play. Last season, DeBoskie-Johnson rushed 10 times for 40 yards and caught four passes for 42 yards.
