BYU has dismissed defensive back Shiloah Te’o from the team after a violation of team rules.
The school did not elaborate on the situation.
Te’o, a 5-foot-10, 206-pound sophomore from Laie, Hawaii, has played in all of BYU’s games this season as a reserve safety. He has five tackles, including one tackle for a loss.
Last season, Te’o played in 11 games on special teams recording five tackles and one fumble recovery.
Te’o is the cousin of Notre Dame freshman linebacker Manti Te’o.
