Davis Leaves Ducks' Football Program

EUGENE – University of Oregon defensive back Sharrod Davis has left the football program by mutual agreement, according to the Ducks' head coach Mike Bellotti.

The Oregon football coach added that Sharrod Davis had been suspended from the team due to his failure to meet Bellotti's academic expectations prior to the decision to leave the program.

The 5-11, 181-pound redshirt freshman from San Diego, Calif., had played in nine games before missing last Saturday's win at Washington State. The majority of his playing time in his second season at Oregon had come by way of special teams, where he had accumulated six tackles. In addition, Davis returned seven kickoffs for an average of 20.9 yards, including a 31-yard run-back against USC, plus returned two punts for a loss of four yards.
