Pitt has dismissed junior tight end Drew Carswell and junior defensive back Eric Williams, the school announced on Tuesday. Carswell and Williams, along with junior defensive tackle Khaynin Mosley-Smith, were indefinitely suspended last week by coach Paul Chryst for their involvement in a drug-related incident.

All three players were detained on April 25 after being found in a house invaded by SWAT personnel. Per a CBS Pittsburgh report, “Detectives say they seized 20 bags of heroin, a marijuana bong and a copper grinder," at the scene.

Mosley-Smith remains on indefinite suspension.

The only Pitt linebacker to appear in all 13 games last year, Williams made a move to safety during spring practice. Carswell played in 10 games in 2012, while Mosley-Smith made appearances in all 13 games.

In an unrelated announcement, Chryst also confirmed the indefinite suspension of freshman quarterback Tra'Von Chapman stemming from a weekend incident off campus.
