McAdoo Dismissed

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. --- Sophomore defensive tackle Jared McAdoo has been dismissed from the football program, head coach Butch Davis announced on Monday.

McAdoo, who was a highly regarded, all-state recruit out of nearby Chapel Hill (N.C.) High School, redshirted in 2009 and then played a significant role for UNC's depleted defensive line in 2010, registering 19 tackles, two tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks while playing both the tackle and end positions.

This dismissal is the result of a third off-the-field incident for McAdoo, according to sources close to the situation, though no police charges have processed by the court as of Monday. McAdoo faced felony charges in 2008 and a misdemeanor charge in 2010.

He was arrested on June 16, 2008 - the summer before his senior year of high school - on a felony charge of possessing a narcotic with intent to sell. He was later granted deferred prosecution on that charge.

On June 19, 2010, McAdoo was charged with a misdemeanor for on-campus possession of a BB gun and was disciplined internally.
