Roberts brothers no longer with WVU

Twin brothers Vernard and Vance Roberts, along with running back Trey Johnson and defensive back Michael Dorsey, are no longer with the West Virginia football team, coach Dana Holgorsen said.

Holgorsen told reporters in Miami on Thursday that the Roberts brothers were out for academic failings. Dorsey and Roberts violated team rules. Vernard Roberts began the season as the starting running back, but quickly fell behind in the race to earn playing time. He finished the season with 140 yards rushing in 11 games. Vance Roberts, a cornerback, never played in a game.

Johnson and Dorsey saw limited action this season.
