More news coming out of Provo regarding Michael Loyd transferring from BYU, apparently he was getting in trouble with the law. There was nothing really serious by most standards with the multiple speeding tickets, but the under age drinking/possession would have been the reason for his dismal from the team and not because of differences.
However, according to the basketball staff they were unaware of his alcohol related offense:
Loyd kept the violations hidden from the school and coaching staff, according to a source close to the coaches who said that the rising star was kicked off the team for other reasons. Rose called them "accountability" and "responsibility" issues in a news conference last week.
BYU officials said last week that they were unaware of Loyd's legal troubles in 2009 and his excessive traffic violations. Through a BYU basketball spokesperson, Rose declined to be interviewed for this report.
"Neither Dave Rose nor his coaching staff are aware of any of the matters [ The Tribune ] inquired about regarding Michael Loyd Jr.," the spokesperson said.
