TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (February 27, 2013)--Four Alabama players arrested and charged after two robberies on campus have been dismissed from the team, head coach Nick Saban said Wednesday.
Linebackers D.J. Pettway and Tyler Hayes, safety Eddie Williams and H-back Brent Calloway "are no longer associated with the football program,” Saban said.
Saban said the players' "actions do not reflect the spirit and character we want our organization to reflect."
Pettway, Williams and Hayes were charged with two counts of second-degree robbery and Williams and Calloway were charged with fraudulent use of a credit card.
Williams confessed to robbing a student who was punched in the head and face and kicked in the ribs and back.
He said Pettway and Hayes watched him commit another robbery from a nearby vehicle about an hour later.
Hayes also confessed.
