MISSOULA – Jeremy Calhoun is no longer on the Montana Grizzlies football team. When asked about it, head coach Bobby Hauck simply said, “He decided he didn’t want to play anymore.”
Calhoun was suspended the first two games of the season. He plead guilty to assault after a fight in downtown Missoula. He missed the third game due to an undisclosed reason. The senior running back from Long Beach, Calif., also missed time with an injury
In total, Calhoun has played in four games this season. New NCAA rules allow a player to redshirt as long as they have played in four or fewer games. Calhoun suited up as a true freshman, so he could have one year of eligibility left, but it is very unlikely he will return to Montana.
Calhoun gained 206 yards on 41 carries in his four games this season, scoring two touchdowns. His best game came in his final contest at Southern Utah, when he gained 99 yards on 16 carries. In his career, he has rushed for 1,826 yards, the 12th-most in Griz history, and 27 touchdowns, the fifth-most in the school record books.
His twin brother, Justin Calhoun, continues to start at cornerback for the Griz.
