Troy University Athletic Director John Hartwell
First and foremost, anytime there is a loss of life it is tragic event and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim and his family. Dimitri Miles was a walk-on student-athlete on our football team who was academically ineligible to compete in competition this past season, but practiced as a member of the scout team. His association with our football team and the Troy Athletic Department has been terminated as a result of these charges which are associated with an incident that occured off campus.
Troy University Dean of Students Herb Reeves
Dimitri Miles has been immediately suspended from Troy University as a result of these charges until such time they have been settled.
