Michael Holmes will no longer play football for Virginia Tech, per David Teel of the Newport News Daily Press.
Teel spoke with Jim Weaver, who informed him Holmes is “permanently separated from the University.” The decision was made not by Weaver, but by the Student Judicial Board. Holmes was arrested in April and charged with felony malicious wounding, but ultimately was found guilty of misdemeanor assault.
Holmes, who would have been a r-sophomore this season, rushed for 280 yards and four touchdowns on 70 carries last season. He started the first five games of the season, but did not get a carry over the final three games of the regular season.
