Four Alabama players facing charges of robbery and fraudulent use of a credit card after a campus attack on two students Feb. 11 are no longer with the team nor enrolled in school.
Coach Nick Saban announced Wednesday the disassociation of defensive back Eddie Williams, running back Brent Calloway, defensive lineman D.J. Pettway and Tyler Hayes with the team and school. The four had been suspended indefinitely by Saban and barred from campus by the university after the incident that left one student unconscious.
Williams, Hayes and Pettway each face two counts of second-degree robbery. Williams and Calloway were charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. In a separate incident a day earlier, Williams was charged with carrying a pistol without a license. Callway also had a prior arrest on misdemeanor possession of marijuana in October 2011.
---Michigan State is expected to name former Ohio State assistant Jim Bollman as its new offensive coordinator, according to multiple reports. Bollman would replace Dan Roushar, who left Michigan State in early February for the New Orleans Saints. Bollman leaves Purdue about a month after he was hired by new coach Darrell Hazell to be the Boilermakers' offensive line coach. He served as Ohio State's offensive coordinator and offensive line coach under Jim Tressel and interim coach Luke Fickell but was not retained by Urban Meyer when he was hired in 2011. Bollman spent the 2012 season as offensive line coach at Boston College.
