The announcement of Carrington's dismissal on Friday was made by Head Coach Willie Taggart. "We will always consider Darren a Duck and support him in any way we can".

OR wide receiver Darren Carrington announced in January that he would return for his senior season, rather than enter the 2017 National Football League draft. Carrington was initially suspended indefinitely before Friday's news.

Carrington, who has one season of eligibility remaining, was arrested on July 1 at a Eugene McDonald's for suspicion of DUII. Without Carrington, Oregon will likely lean on sophomore Dillon Mitchell and freshman Darrian McNeal to step up and fill the void left by the former star receiver. In addition to DUI, Carrington was also cited for careless driving and making an improper turn. As a member of the Ducks, he caught 112 passes for 1,919 yards and 15 touchdowns, playing in 29 games over the course of three seasons.

In the fall, Carrington was accused of pushing a man and breaking the man's arm while dressed like the Joker for Halloween.

The wideout did not play in the 2014 College Football Playoff championship game after failing an NCAA-administered drug test, the Register-Guard reported. He wasn't eligible for the first half of the following season but still had 609 receiving yards and six touchdowns.
