Dyer Wants to Return to Football at Arkansas

Former Auburn star running back Michael Dyer wants to return to college football and possibly to the Razorbacks. 

Dyer was dismissed from the Auburn team and transferred to Arkansas State where he was also dismissed. Dyer took this past year off from football and enrolled at Arkansas Baptist. 

In an interview, Dyer said that he is eager to return to college football and would play for the Razorbacks if the opportunity arose. 

Dyer, a native of Arkansas rushed for 2,335 total yards and 15 total touchdowns in two seasons at Auburn. He also helped lead the 2011 Auburn Tigers to a National Championship. 

Although the stats are impressive, Dyer has a controversial past. He was dismissed from the Auburn team after providing a gun to teammates who were involved in an armed robbery. Dyer was then suspended from Arkansas State after a policeman pulled him over and searched his vehicle, finding a handgun and marijuana. 

Michael Dyer playing with Arkansas has its pros and cons. 


  • Dyer posted back to back 1,000+ yard seasons as a freshman and sophomore at Auburn
  • Has experience playing with a winning team
  • Won a National Championship
  • Named offensive MVP of the National Championship game
  • Holds the Auburn freshman rushing record


  • Questionable past
  • Will he stay out of trouble?
  • Is he trustworthy?
  • Took a year off from college football
There are many pros to letting Dyer get another shot at college football but the cons are very serious. 
Will it make Arkansas look bad if they take him? But then again, Michael Dyer, Jonathan Williams and Alex Collins could possibly be the most deadly backfield in college football.
