CB Marcus Peters Dismissed from Washington

CB Marcus Peters Dismissed from Washington

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(SEATTLE) --  University of Washington cornerback Marcus Peters was dismissed from the team, head coach Chris Petersen announced Thursday.

The dismissal comes after Peters got into another argument with assistant coaches during practice Wednesday. Despite being kicked off the team, Peters will still have a scholarship to complete his education.

"These are not decisions that are taken lightly," Petersen said. "We have high standards for players in our program and they are held accountable when those standards are not met. I wish Marcus the best in the completion of his education and in achieving his football goals."

This isn't the first time Peters has had problems with Washington's coaching staff. He was suspended one game earlier this season after having a sideline tantrum following a personal foul call in the team's game against Eastern Washington.

Peters was playing in his third season for Washington. This year he has 30 tackles and three interceptions. He was rated as ESPN's Mel Kiper's No. 22 prospect on his current Big Board. Freshmen Sidney Jones and Naijiel Hale will start at cornerback Saturday when the Huskies host No. 18 UCLA.
