Mike Leach has kicked Washington State linebacker C.J. Mizell off the football team after multiple transgressions.

Junior linebacker C.J. Mizell was considered one of the most prominent tacklers for the Washington St. Cougars. But he's had his issues in the past, and the Washington St. Cougars have had to come down on him and punish him for his transgressions. In fact, only the firing of Paul Wulff kept Mizell from getting booted off prior to this season.

That didn't seem to save him long enough. It seems that the new regime has had enough of Mizell after his latest incident. Bryan Fischer of CBS Sports reports.

Mike Leach knows he's got a rebuilding job to do on the Palouse but that doesn't mean team discipline will take a back seat in his quest to lead the program back to glory. The head coach announced on Tuesday that linebacker C.J. Mizell was no longer with the Washington State football team following his arrest over the weekend after his involvement in a fight at a fraternity house.

Mike Leach isn't messing around. At Texas Tech, the eccentric head coach was known for his discipline on personal matters of his student-athletes. Leach placed particular emphasis on making sure his students attended and excelled in class and stayed academically and mentally sound. And it seems like he's doing the same thing here with Mizell.
