Arizona senior safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant leaves Wildcats program

Sunday August 3rd, 2014

Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez informed reporters on Saturday night that Wildcats senior safety Tra’Mayne Bondurant has left the team, according to the Arizona Daily Star.

Bondurant had "discipline issues" during the offseason, according to the report, and did not fulfill the requirements to move forward from them. Subsequently, Rodriguez informed safeties coach Matt Caponi on Saturday morning that Bondurant is no longer with the team. 

Rodriguez said he won't "lock the doors" on the possibility of the safety returning to the team:

“Tra’Mayne Bondurant had some discipline things that he had to do, and he chose to leave the program, so he’s no longer a Wildcat as of today. You can do the discipline and be part of the team, or, I never lock the doors from the inside out. The doors are never locked.”

In his first three seasons with the team, Bondurant started 30 of his 36 games. Last year, he had 72 tackles, including seven for a loss and four interceptions, two sacks and five pass breakups.
