Ann Arbor — Sophomore receiver Csont’e York, who allegedly threw a punch and broke a man’s jaw in an incident last month, has been dismissed from the Michigan football team.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke announced Monday evening that York, who had been indefinitely suspended, is no longer part of the team.

“Representing the University of Michigan is a privilege and while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it’s better for everyone if that happens somewhere else,” Hoke said in a statement. “Overall, I have been proud of how responsible our team has been this offseason and how hard they’ve worked to prepare for the season.”

The Ann Arbor Police Department last week released the police report of the early morning incident outside of Scorekeepers in Ann Arbor and also a video of a man they identified as York punching John Lavoie-Mayer. Lavoie-Mayer's jaw was broken in three places, according to the police report.

Hoke, who had announced York’s indefinite suspension earlier this month on the eve of preseason camp, reiterated last week even after the release of the video that York was “no question” still part of the team.

“We’re going to go through the process,” Hoke said last week. “His status hasn’t changed.”

York, 20 and a native of Harper Woods, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery. His pre-trial hearing that was originially scheduled for Friday has been moved to Sept. 8 according to online court records.
