Head coach Kyle Flood has announced the dismissal of Darian Dailey after the cornerback was arrested last weekend in Sarasota, Florida for armed robbery.

The decision comes after Flood initially stated he was gathering information about Dailey's arrest on Sunday.

Dailey and Trazelle Johnson reportedly stole $20 in an armed robbery early Sunday morning.  Additional details include that Dailey was the driver and owner of the car used during the robbery after the 18-year-old victim identified Dailey.

From the article linked above:

Dailey, who was driving a black Dodge registered to his mother, and Johnson, the passenger, stopped the car directly in front of an 18-year-old who was riding his bicycle home from work just before 2 a.m. on Sunday, according to the warrant. Police said Johnson got out of the car with his face covered by a cloth and pointed what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun at the victim and asked, "What you got?"

After the victim said he had $20, Johnson said, "Hand it over," according to the warrant. Dailey, 19, stood behind Johnson, 19, near the rear of vehicle during the exchange. Dailey and Johnson then got back into the car and drove away, according to the warrant.

Dailey was a late addition to Rutgers 2014 recruiting class.  He redshirted last season, but showed a lot of promise this spring.
