Wyoming head football coach Craig Bohl announced some major discipline with eight players in the program being affected Thursday.

Bohl has dismissed three players from the team for a violation of rules. Those three are redshirt freshman defensive tackle Ja’Chai Baker; redshirt freshman linebacker Drew Harvey; and redshirt freshman fullback Zach Taylor of Gillette.

Five more players have been temporarily suspended due to a violation of team rules. They are redshirt freshman running back Mike Green II; junior cornerback Antonio Hull; senior free safety Tim Kamana; redshirt freshman linebacker Adrian King; and junior linebacker Chavez Pownell Jr.

The release from the university said Bohl will not have any further comment on the dismissals or suspensions, nor will anyone else from UW Athletics.

Wyoming hits the halfway mark of spring practice with their eighth session Thursday. They have a major scrimmage in Casper on Saturday at 1 p.m. from Cheney Alumni Field at Natrona County High School.
