Quarterback Tate Forcier no longer with the Michigan football program
Tate Forcier was ruled ineligible to play only days before the Michigan football team's appearance in the Gator Bowl.
His status was up in the air then. Now it seems permanent.
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said Wednesday that Forcier is "not with the program."
Brandon made the announcement during a press conference to introduce new football coach Brady Hoke at the Junge Family Champions Center.
He said that he could not further elaborate on Forcier's departure, citing academic privacy policies. He did not say whether there was a possibility Forcier could return at a later date.
Forcier could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
As a sophomore, he played in eight games for the Wolverines primarily as a backup to Denard Robinson. He had started all 12 games as a true freshman in 2009.
