UConn senior running back Lyle McCombs has left the program.
McCombs finishes his Huskies career with 2,681 yards and 11 career 100-yard rushing games; he led the school in rushing in all three of his years on campus. "Attending school at the University of Connecticut is a special privilege as is being a member of the UConn football team," said head coach Bob Diaco. "With that privilege also come certain responsibilities and expectations. We wish Lyle only the best in his future endeavors as he moves on from UConn." The 5-foot-8, 171-pound back could apply for the supplemental draft, or he could elect to transfer elsewhere and play in 2014 using the NCAA's graduate rule. Wed, Jun 4, 2014 04:08:00 PM
