Louisville dismisses Council after armed robbery arrest
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe has dismissed cornerback Rod Council from the team after Council allegedly robbed a gas station early Wednesday morning.
Council, 22, was charged with one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon. He was being held on $50,000 bond at the Haywood County Detention Center in Waynesville, N.C., on Wednesday evening.
"We do not tolerate that type of behavior in our football program," the school said in a statement. "Fortunately, no innocent bystanders were injured or harmed in the process."
Council, who had one year of eligibility remaining, had 32 tackles and two interceptions last year for the Cardinals.
