Tyler Slavin, the wide receiver who caught the game-winning touchdown against Nevada in the New Mexico Bowl, is no longer a member of the Arizona football team.

Slavin voluntarily left the program Friday, UA spokeswoman Molly O’Mara said. 

Slavin announced his departure on Twitter, saying: “I announce that I will be leaving the University of Arizona!”. His name has since been removed from the Wildcats’ online roster.

Slavin is still listed in the UA’s student database; the junior carires a double major in public management and policy, and psychology. It's unclear whether Slavin intends to transfer. 

The 6-foot-2-inch, 205-pound Slavin caught 22 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown last year. In three seasons at the UA, Slavin appeared in 31 games.
