Ann Arbor, MI - Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez says as soon as he found out quarterback Justin Feagin was getting into trouble off the field he was dismissed from the team.

The coach also insists he didn't know about the player's previous run-ins with the law.
Rodriguez faced questions about Feagin on Monday. The Wolverines had their first practice on the same day the Detroit Free Press reported Feagin was involved in a drug deal.
The newspaper reported that Feagin acknowledged to campus police his role in a botched cocaine deal and admitted he sold drugs and was arrested twice in Florida while in high school.
Rodriguez kicked Feagin off the team last month. Feagin played sparingly in four games last season as a freshman.
