COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer has dismissed starting tailback Carlos Hyde from the team after an alleged assault against a female, according to a published report.

The Columbus Dispatch reported  that Hyde was named as a person of interest in an assault against a female in a downtown Columbus bar.

In a separate incident, first-team cornerback Bradley Roby is being investigated over another assault in Indiana, this one involving him allegedly striking a security guard at a bar.

Ohio State officials did not immediately comment on either incident and declined to confirm Hyde’s dismissal from the team.
Hyde, a 6-foot, 242-pound senior from Naples, Fla., rushed for 970 yards on 185 carries last season, second best on the team behind quarterback Braxton Miller, and was the unbeaten Buckeyes’ leading scorer with 17 touchdowns and 102 points.

He came within just 30 yards of becoming the first running back to reach 1,000 yards in a season in Meyer’s 12 years as a head coach at Bowling Green, Utah, Florida and his lone year at Ohio State.
