Claiborne, Golden Dismissed From A&M Football Team

(June 3, 2014) Linebacker Darian Claiborne and defensive lineman Isaiah Golden have been dismissed from the Texas A&M football team.

The dismissal comes after both players were charged with aggravated robbery earlier Tuesday. The two were also arrested on drug charges in the last few months.

Coach Kevin Sumlin says: "These two individuals have failed to meet the high expectations and standards that we have for our football players and as representatives of this university. These two players have exhibited a pattern of behavior that we will not tolerate at Texas A&M."

Claiborne was named to the SEC All-Freshman team after piling up 89 tackles, including seven for losses last season. He started nine games and forced two fumbles.

Golden appeared in 11 games as a freshman last season and had 30 tackles and three tackles for losses.
