Devonte Fields 'permanently separated' from TCU
The separation between TCU and defensive end Devonte Fields is now permanent, Travis L. Brown of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Fields was removed from the Horned Frogs online roster on Wednesday.
The player was separated from the team on July 22 after being named a suspect in a domestic disturbance call that alleged he punched his ex-girlfriend in the head. Fields was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault two days later.
On Aug. 5, it was reported that Fields would not be allowed to return to TCU. The next day, he announced he was transferring to FCS school Stephen F. Austin. Fields later decided not to after learning his suspension would make him ineligible to play immediately.
Fields was the Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year in 2012 and had been named the conference's preseason Defensive Player of the Year a day before the allegations came out.
He played just two games for the Horned Frogs last season due to a suspension and a foot injury.
