UCLA Football Coach Jim Mora Dismisses 3 Players

WESTWOOD (CBS) — New UCLA head football coach Jim Mora wasted no time making an impact on the athletic program, dismissing two players for violating team rules, while a third is gone for academic reasons.

“Redshirt sophomore defensive end Wesley Flowers and freshman tight end Raymond Nelson violated team rules and are no longer members of the team, while junior defensive back Randall Carroll is no longer enrolled at UCLA,” said Mora in a written statement.

Carroll was dismissed for failing to meet UCLA’s academic requirements, Mora added.

“At UCLA we have a high set of standards that we expect every student-athlete to adhere to,” Mora said. “Unfortunately, these three gentlemen choose not to do so.”
