University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban
announced Wednesday that Brent Calloway, Tyler Hayes, D.J. Pettway, and Eddie
Williams were no longer associated with the football program.
"Based on all the information we've received and gone
through in trying to determine the future of the four guys that got in trouble,
those guys are no longer associated with the football program," said Saban.
"Their actions do not reflect the spirit and character that we want our
organization to reflect. It's obviously very disappointing and unacceptable
what happened. I've been really proud that over the last five years our team
has done a very good job of their personal responsibility and how they
represent the university, what they have done in the community, the classroom
and on the field.
"We are going to continue to do as much as we can in
personal development and character development in our program with education to
try to help our guys have a chance to be more successful in life. Some people
learn by words, some people learn by consequences, some people can't learn."
In addition, Danny Woodson has been suspended through the
spring and Marvin Shinn has elected not to participate in the offseason program
and spring drills.
"Danny Woodson has been suspended for violation of team
rules so he's not going to be participating," said Saban. "Marvin Shinn has
elected not to go through the offseason program. Therefore, he will not be
going through spring practice or be part of the team. I'm assuming that he's
going to decide to go someplace else, but I haven't heard that."
There are two players who may be limited when spring
practice begins as John Fulton and Kevin Norwood are both dealing with toe
"John Fulton is recovering from turf toe that he had
actually at the end of the season and I am not sure if he will be able to
participate some in spring practice or not," said Saban. "Kind of a see how it
goes type of thing. Kevin Norwood also has a toe injury and his status is
uncertain for the spring as of now."
The team is currently involved in the offseason conditioning
program and spring practice begins on March 16.
"The offseason program is going very well," said Saban. "The
players are working hard, they have a good attitude about what we are trying to
do. They're doing a really good job."
Spring drills conclude with A-Day on April 20, which will be
televised live to a national audience on ESPN2 at 2 p.m. (CT).
