Arizona's new athletic director Greg Byrne weighed in on the Delashaun Dean situation during his weekly Facebook blast today. Well, sort of — mostly, Byrne talked about how it could have been prevented.
Here's the cut-and-paste:
In case you haven't been paying attention, Dean was arrested June 19 and cited for suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon. Within days, he was suspended indefinitely by coach Mike Stoops. Dean decided Sunday to transfer to Texas A&M Kingsville. Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty to the weapons charge.
Dean's departure leaves a bit of a hole at the wide receiver position, thought most would agree its the Wildcats' most talent-rich position. Gino Crump told me he's ready to pick up where Dean left off; and, while we're at it, why not Matt Scott at receiver?
