AUSTIN, Texas (AP) New Texas coach Charlie Strong opened his first training camp Sunday by announcing the suspension of three potential starters, and confirmed the dismissal of several other players for legal troubles and team rules violations.
Strong said offensive lineman Desmond Harrison, wide receiver Daje Johnson and safety Josh Turner all will miss at least one game for rules violations.
Strong wouldn't detail the violations, but said they ran counter to his team rules of honesty, treating women with respect, no drugs and no guns.
Strong also said wide receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander, who were suspended after being arrested on rape charges, will not be allowed back regardless of how their cases turn out.
Texas hired Strong from Louisville to replace Mack Brown after 16 seasons.
