Devonte Fields has been dismissed from TCU, a school official said Thursday.

Fields, a defensive end and the preseason Big 12 defensive player of the year, was separated July 22 amid allegations of domestic violence after a dispute at a Fort Worth home.

He turned himself in July 24 on a warrant for assault with bodily injury of a family member, and admitted being at the scene but denied ever assaulting the victim, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

TCU coaches had agreed to allow Fields to transfer to Stephen F. Austin, but on Aug. 9, a TCU disciplinary committee found Fields in violation of the school’s code of conduct and suspended him.

NCAA rules require players to sit out a year when they leave a school while they are disqualified or suspended for disciplinary reasons.

As a result, Fields chose not to enroll at SFA.
