Memphis sophomore Kuran Iverson will transfer away from the program after the spring semester, the school announced on Friday.

The 6-foot-9 forward won't play for the Tigers the rest of this season.

Earlier this month, Iverson favorited a message posted to Twitter that was critical of coach Josh Pastner after being suspended for a violation of team rules.

Over eight games this season, Iverson averaged 4.6 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.

“Kuran and I visited and he will be transferring at the end of the spring semester,” Pastner said in a statement. “We thank Kuran for his contributions to the program and wish him well in his future academic and athletic endeavors.”

Iverson was rated the No. 5 small forward and No. 28 player in the class of 2013 by the recruiting service Rivals.com.

The Tigers (10-6), picked to finish third in the American Athletic Conference in a preseason poll, host UCF on Saturday.
