Auburn Dismisses Shaq Johnson From Team

Auburn coach Tony Barbee has dismissed sophomore Shaq Johnson from the Tigers basketball team for a “violation of team rules,” the school announced Thursday.

“We hold our student-athletes to a high standard at Auburn University in the way that they conduct themselves off the court,” Barbee said. “I am very disappointed in Shaq’s choices and actions, and they won’t be tolerated. This decision is not one that I take lightly, but it is in the best interest of both the program and the student-athlete.”
