Two weeks ago we brought you the story of Kirk Merritt, the man with the world's worst case of jock itch — or so he claimed. That was the Texas A&M football player's excuse for exposing his genitals to two separate female tutors within 24 hours.
Merritt participated in Aggies spring practices and was expected to play this fall. But now he has been dismissed from the team, an anonymous Aggie told the Bryan Eagle .
The football player, who transferred to A&M from the University of Oregon, had been suspended from the team in October, after the incident. But his suspension was lifted in February after the on-campus disciplinary body concluded Merritt's actions constituted disorderly conduct but were not sexual in nature.
Merritt still faces criminal charges of indecent exposure in Brazoria County.
