MU’s Woodley suspended

Tuesday, March 23, 2004 | 12:00 a.m. CST; updated 4:30 p.m. CDT, Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Chad Moller, Missouri’s sports information director, confirmed Monday that MU suspended Alex Woodley, a redshirt freshman defensive back, from the football team.

MU police arrested Woodley on Thursday for theft of more than $750 and fraudulent use of a credit card.

MU police have not released more details and Moller said the coaching staff will handle further discipline internally, as it usually does. Woodley posted $500 bond. The length of his suspension is unknown.

Woodley, 18, came to Missouri as a 5-foot-11, 185-pound running back and sat out his freshman year. He made the switch to cornerback before spring practice began. He was third on the depth chart at that position before his arrest.
