Texas safety Robert Joseph has elected to transfer after being indefinitely suspended by Texas head coach Mack Brown. Joseph's suspension occurred after he was charged with two separate Class A misdemeanors for burglary of a vehicle, which occurred in the parking garage of the Omni Hotel, according to a police affidavit.

In an official release from the University of Texas, Joseph said:

"I want to thank coach Brown, coach Akina and all of the staff for everything they did for me. I've really enjoyed my time at Texas, but I think it's in my best interest now to transfer and get a fresh start. I don't know where I'm going to go yet, but I hope to continue working towards my dream of playing in the NFL."

Mack Brown also released a statement, stating simply:

"We appreciate everything that Robert contributed to our football program. We wish him the very best in football and in life."

A graduate of Memorial High School in Port Arthur, Tex., Joseph posted 14 tackles and a pass break-up his freshman season as a back-up safety and on special teams before missing the final six games with a shoulder injury.
