LINCOLN, Neb.- After being suspended the past two games, Missouri point guard Randy Pulley was dismissed from the team Friday.
Pulley was originally held out for missing two practices after Missouri’s 83-70 loss at Colorado on Jan 28. Pulley did not attend the Tigers’ home game against Kansas State on Jan. 31 and did not travel with the team to Kansas on Monday.
Snyder said that no decision had been made regarding Pulley’s status Thursday, but a press release from the Tigers on Friday afternoon confirmed Pulley had been dismissed from the team.
“Randy has been dismissed from our squad and will transfer from Mizzou at the end of this semester,” Snyder said in statement. “We will help him in any way we can, and we wish him well in the future.”
Pulley, a junior from Raleigh, N.C., played in 11 games for the Tigers this season and averaged 1.6 points.
Pulley’s minutes decreased dramatically in the past few weeks, including just two minutes against Nebraska on Jan. 24 and suiting up but not playing at Colorado four days later.
Pulley joined the Tigers in April 2003 when he transferred from Barton County (Kan.) Community College. He began his collegiate career at St. Louis but was forced to transfer because of academic issues.
Pulley is the fourth player dismissed from the team during the five-year stint of coach Quin Snyder.
Missouri plays at Nebraska today at 12:30 p.m.
