Dyer reportedly given conditional release by Auburn

AUBURN, Ala. (WTVM) - Multiple media outlets are reporting that sophomore running back Michael Dyer has been given his release by Auburn. The reports say the release is conditional, listing a limited number of schools where Dyer could enroll that would not require him to sit out a season.

There has been speculation that Dyer, a native of Little Rock, Ark., would follow former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State.

Dyer broke Bo Jackson's freshman rushing record in 2010, then became only the fifth running back in Auburn history to top the 1000 yard mark in consecutive seasons.

Dyer's departure would leave rising senior Onterrio McCalebb as the only running back with extensive game experience. Tre Mason saw limited duty as a freshman. Two other running backs who sat out last season after transferring, Corey Grant (Alabama) and Mike Blakely (Florida), will be eligible. Jovon Robinson, a prep running back from Memphis, has given Auburn a verbal commitment.
