No decision yet on filing Dyer waiver

Posted: February 9, 2012 at 4:13 a.m.

Arkansas State Coach Gus Malzahn said Wednesday the program hasn’t decided whether to file a personal hardship waiver with the NCAA on behalf of Michael Dyer that, if granted, would allow the running back to play this coming season. Dyer, a Little Rock native, transferred Jan. 10 from Auburn to ASU and would have to sit out the 2012 season under NCAA rules if he isn’t granted a waiver. He was released from his Auburn scholarship Jan. 6. He left Auburn after he was suspended indefinitely Dec. 11 for an undisclosed violation of team rules and missed the Tigers’ 43-24 victory against Virginia in the Chickfil-A Bowl on Dec. 31. “We really haven’t moved that far to get to that point,” Malzahn said. “After we have time to think through the situation, if there’s a legitimate need, we’ll look into that. But at this point we haven’t gotten that far.”
