Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer announced on Wednesday that kicker Cody Journell has been dismissed from the program for a violation of team rules.

While the Hokies didn't offer specifics about Journell's violation, the redshirt senior had run into trouble prior to this week. He was suspended for the team's Sugar Bowl appearance after the 2011 season following an arrest, and he was suspended for the team's game against Marshall on Sept. 21 for another undisclosed violation.

After missing the Marshall game in September, Journell told reporters he had moved on from his mistakes.

"All I'm saying is I made a mistake last week," said Journell, who will kick Thursday night for Virginia Tech at Georgia Tech. "I'm sorry for it. I want to apologize to coaches and players and my family and everybody that supports me, but that I'm back this week and everything's fine."

[...]

"(Beamer and I) already dealt with it before the (Marshall) game, and now it's over, so now it's back to football," Journell said.

A three-year starter, Journell had connected on 10-of-16 attempts and 24-of-26 PATs in 2013. He was also pictured on the tickets for this Saturday's game against Maryland.
