LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas Tech has dismissed linebacker Daniel Cobb from the team after he was arrested and charged with felony burglary.
Red Raiders spokesman Blayne Beal said Tuesday that Cobb was dismissed for violating unspecified team rules.
Online records show Cobb, a junior from Killeen, Texas, was arrested Sunday and charged with burglary of a habitation. Conviction of the second-degree felony is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Information was unavailable on whether Cobb had an attorney. He was released early Tuesday after posting bond of $5,000.
According to a Lubbock police report, an officer responding to the Sunday burglary call found evidence of forced entry into an apartment and Cobb assaulting the occupant.
Cobb started seven games last season and made 70 tackles, the third-best total on the team.
