Linebacker Derrick Turituri is not listed on Arizona’s roster and is no longer part of the football program.

Turituri started the first four games at outside linebacker as a junior last season before suffering a season-ending hip injury. The 6-foot-1, 265-pound Turituri had 13 tackles, including two stops for losses, and one pass breakup.

Turituri started eight games in 2014, compiling 44 tackles. He had five stops for losses, including three sacks, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery.

Because of the hip injury, Turituri wasn’t expected to play a significant role for the Wildcats this season.

Arizona is in the midst of retooling its defense and added graduate transfer Michael Barton from Cal. Several freshmen also will compete with top holdovers DeAndre' Miller, Paul Magloire Jr. and Cody Ippolito, who’s on track to return from a knee injury.

UA coach Rich Rodriguez will address the linebacking corps and other issues at Pac-12 Media Days on Thursday in Hollywood, California.
