Brian Bahr/Getty Images(AUSTIN, Texas) — University of Texas head coach Charlie Strong continued cleaning house Tuesday.
Strong dismissed his ninth player of the season when he kicked junior offensive tackle Kennedy Estelle off the squad for violating team rules.
Estelle has been suspended for the last three games after starting at left tackle in the team’s season opener.
This is not the first time Estelle has been suspended while at Texas. He wasn’t allowed to play in the Alamo Bowl last season after being ruled academically ineligible.
Estelle joins former starters Kendall Sanders and Joe Bergeron, as well as Leroy Scott, Chet Moss, Montrel Meander, Chevoski Collins, Deoundrei Davis and Jalen Overstreet, as players that have been dismissed from the team since March.

Brian Bahr/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — There’s a new sheriff in Austin and Charlie Strong is making his presence known. The first year head coach has already kicked at least six players off his team since taking over the Longhorns, adding four more to the list on Friday.
Safety Josh Turner, running back Jalen Overstreet, defensive back Chevoski Collins and senior running back Joe Bergeron have all been dismissed from the team according to multiple sources. Turner, Overstreet, and Collins were all dismissed for violating team rules while the reason for Bergeron’s dismissal is not yet known. The University has not made mention of any suspensions or dismissals.
A projected starter, Turner has played 37 games with five starts in his Longhorns career. Overstreet ran for 102 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 2013 as a freshman after switching to running back from the quarterback position. Collins was a redshirt player last season and listed as a backup safety while Bergeron had faced academic issues in the spring.
Fullback Chet Moss and defensive back Leroy Scott were also kicked off the team back in the spring for a violation of team rules. A source close to the Longhorns said has many as five more players could face disciplinary action for similar infractions. Strong has also suspended receivers Kendall Sanders and Montreal Meander after the two were arrested on sexual assault charges Thursday night.
