Head Coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday that ASU wide receiver Allen Muse would no longer hold a position with the Red Wolves.
The decision came after a mutual discussion between Malzahn and Muse.
“Allen has faced tremendous tragedy in his life over the last few years, He and I have talked and agreed that it was the best for him to focus on his personal life and family moving forward,” Malzahn said in a press release Tuesday.
Muse was arrested Sept. 5 in reference to a domestic dispute at his residence and cited for third-degree assault after breaking down a bathroom dorm after his wife locked herself in with his phone.
There was no record of an attack in the report. Muse was released on $775 bond.
Muse will end his ASU career with 65 receptions for 853 yards and seven touchdowns. He posted a career-best 133 receiving yards against Louisiana-Lafayette and recorded a career-high eight receptions against Navy in 2010.
“I want to wish Allen nothing but the best in the future,” Malzahn said.
Malzahn has stated in several interviews that he holds his team to a high standard.
Muse will become the third player to no longer old a position with the Red Wolves since the start of the 2012 season.
