Idaho State's Moore dismissed from team
Idaho State dismissed senior running back and return specialist Tavoy Moore, citing conduct detrimental to the football team.
A year ago, Moore was second in the Big Sky Conference with 2,034 all-purpose yards and returned two punts and two kickoffs for touchdowns. He was a pre-season all-conference player.
ISU athletics director Jeff Tingey tells the Idaho State Journal that Moore was dismissed Monday at the recommendation of coach Mike Kramer. Tingey says the dismissal was the result of a combination of events.
Moore had missed spring drills with some off-field issues and missed three games in September after spraining his ankle.
Kramer criticized Moore after the team’s 33-0 loss to Montana last Saturday, saying “our debonair tailback, who’s supposed to be a really good player, frizzled and melted himself.”
Moore had one carry for no gain, fumbled a punt return and returned three kickoffs for a total of 63 yards.
