 ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Jerret Smith has been dismissed from Michigan's basketball team by coach John Beilein for not meeting the expectations for a student-athlete.
``After over a month of evaluation and discussion, our coaching staff has decided that Jerret has not made sufficient effort to meet those expectations,'' Beilein said in a statement Friday. ``Therefore, it is in the best interest of the future of our basketball program that we move in a different direction.''
Smith played in 65 games with 13 starts, averaging 4.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.7 assists during his three seasons.
K'Len Morris and Kendric Price both left Michigan's basketball program earlier this year for personal reasons. Morris decided to transfer, while Price remains at Michigan.
Morris and Price were recruited by Tommy Amaker, who was fired after last season and replaced by Beilein.
