Ducks coach Willie Taggart announced Friday the dismissal of Darren Carrington from the team.

"I have visited with Darren Carrington and informed him that he is no longer a member of our program," Taggart said in a statement. "We will always consider Darren a Duck and support him in any way we can. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Carrington, who would have entered his senior season, was arrested on DUI charges July 1. That arrest was just the latest off-field incident for the 6-2 wideout, who is the son of former NFL safety Darren Carrington. The younger Carrington caught 112 passes for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns, but passed on a chance to enter the 2017 NFL Draft. He would not have been eligible for this week's supplemental draft.

Taggart suspended Carrington indefinitely following his July 1 arrest in Eugene. Carrington previously failed a drug test prior to the College Football Playoff championship game as a redshirt freshman, received a citation for an open container in 2015 and was accused last fall of breaking a fellow student's arm. Carrington graduated in June with a degree in sociology.
