Earlier today, news came that Washington Huskies linebacker Victor Burnett had been dismissed from the football program and was escorted out of his dorm room by police. While we still do not know the details or specifics of what happened with Burnett, we do have confirmation from Huskies head coach Steve Sarkisian that the linebacker has indeed been dismissed.
UW coach Steve Sarkisian confirms that MLB Victor Burnett has been dismissed for violation of team rules.
This will be a significant loss for UW, though they do have a few weeks to find a suitable replacement. It is unfortunate that the two sides could no longer coexist, but sometimes things take place and it is just in the best interest to just move on.
The Huskies will open their season September 3 against Eastern Washington.
