Linebacker Davis leaves Iowa football team

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa linebacker Bruce Davis has left the football team, head coach Kirk Ferentz announced in a release on Monday afternoon.

Davis remains on track to graduate from the Iowa in December. The Cleveland native cited personal reasons for why he left the Hawkeyes, according to the release.

He declined further comment on Monday evening.

Davis recorded four tackles in Iowa's first three games this season. The redshirt senior missed most of the 2010 season after he suffered an undisclosed injury in the Hawkeyes' loss to Arizona on Sept. 18.

On Iowa's most recent depth chart, released Monday morning, Davis was listed as the squad's second-team middle linebacker.

"Bruce was a part of three very special football seasons," Ferentz said in the release. "The coaching staff and I appreciate Bruce's contributions over the past four-and-a-half years and wish him success in finishing his degree in December and beyond."
