Michigan coach Rodriguez dismisses CB Cissoko
Coach Rich Rodriguez late Tuesday released a one-sentence statement: "Boubacar Cissoko has been dismissed for a violation of team rules."
Rodriguez suspended Cissoko on Oct. 10, also citing a violation of team rules, some of which were related to academics. The sophomore missed the Iowa and Delaware State games but played briefly in Saturday's loss to Penn State.
Cissoko had 16 tackles, one interception and two pass breakups this season after playing in all 12 games last season.
The Wolverines (5-3, 1-3 Big Ten) play this week at Illinois (1-6, 0-5).
