OR kicks WR Darren Carrington off team following DUI arrest

Oregon Ducks football spring game 2017

The announcement follows Carrington's DUII arrest on July 1, along with a series of other behavioral issues, documented here.

It is unclear if the post was related to Taggart's decision to dismiss Carrington.

"We will always consider Darren a Duck and support him in any way we can", Taggart said in the statement. His decision to skip the National Football League draft and return as a senior was welcomed by Taggart, who praised Carrington's performance in spring practices.

Carrington, about to enter his fifth season, was projected to be Oregon's top wide receiver. "We wish him all the best in his future endeavors". Reaves reached a settlement with the University over his contract and resigned in February.

OR will indeed be without one of its top playmakers when the Ducks host Nebraska in September.

Carrington has been a key contributor for OR with 112 catches for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns in 29 games over three seasons.

Carrington was Oregon's most established receiver and averaged 17.1 yards per catch for his career. Perhaps his biggest game was in the 2015 Rose Bowl in which he caught seven passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns in Oregon's 59-20 win over Florida State.

Taggart suspended Carrington indefinitely following his July 1 arrest in Eugene.

Carrington, who graduated in June, is scheduled to appear in Eugene Municipal Court next week.
