MADISON, Wis. (AP) -Lance Smith was dismissed from Wisconsin's football team Monday, a month after he was expelled from a first-offenders program for failing to meet its requirements.
Coach Bret Bielema, who suspended Smith last month, announced the dismissal after the team's first practice of the season.
Smith was placed in the program last October after a judge accepted Smith's guilty pleas to charges of battery and disorderly conduct. The charges stemmed from an altercation between Smith and his girlfriend in July 2007.
What Smith did to be removed from the first-offender program has not been disclosed.
Smith's case will now be sent back to court for sentencing on battery and disorderly conduct charges.
Smith has two seasons of eligibility remaining. He missed five games last season as a sophomore as part of a suspension handed down by the university.
