      Dorial Green-Beckham is no longer a member of the Missouri football program.

      Tigers coach Gary Pinkel announced the decision in a statement released through the school.

      "This decision was made with the best interests of all involved in mind," Pinkel said. "Dorial's priority going forward needs to be focusing on getting the help he needs. As we have all along, we will continue to do everything we can to assist Dorial and his family.

      "We care deeply about Dorial and his well-being, but hopefully he can benefit from a fresh start."

      Green-Beckham was suspended indefinitely earlier this week after an incident in which witnesses say he assaulted a women at her Columbia, Mo. apartment.

      According to an incident report through the Columbia Police Department, Green Beckham forced his way into the women's home and physically assaulted her.

      The report says the woman refused to press charges because "she was afraid of the media and community backlash".

      The 6-foot-6, 220 pound Green-Beckham would have been the top returning receiver on the team after catching 59 passes for 883 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013.
