Auburn backup quarterback Sean White has been dismissed from the team after his weekend arrest for public intoxication, coach Gus Malzahn announced.
The 21-year-old was arrested by Auburn Police at 2:45 a.m. Sunday on charges of public intoxication. He was admitted to Lee County jail at 3:28 a.m., where he was released a few hours later on a $500 bond.
“Sean White is no longer a part of our football program at Auburn. He has made poor decisions that are not in the best interest of our program, and more importantly, himself,” said Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn in a statement. “We appreciate his time at Auburn and wish him nothing but the best.”
White had been suspended for the first two games of the season for undisclosed reasons. He started 16 games the past two seasons at Auburn but lost the job to transfer Jarrett Stidham for 2017.
