University of Pittsburgh freshman quarterback — and former Kent Roosevelt standout — Tra'von Chapman has been dismissed from the team, school officials announced Friday.
Chapman was arrested in April on assault charges against a former girlfriend and pleaded guilty in July. He was placed on indefinite suspension from the football program in early May and was sentenced to three days in the Portage County Jail on July 30.
"We believe it is in everyone's best interest that Tra'Von pursue his academic and athletic careers at another institution," Pitt coach Paul Chryst said in a statement. "We wish him the best."
Chapman enrolled at Pitt in January and practiced with the team during spring drills.
