Shafer on Naesean Howard: ‘We have decided to part ways’

first_imgNaesean Howard is no longer on the Syracuse football team, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer confirmed in a statement released Tuesday night. Nate Mink of The Post-Standard was the first to report Howard’s status.“We have decided to part ways,” Shafer said of Howard in the statement. “We wish Naesean all the best in the future.”Howard, a two-way player at nearby West Genesee (New York) High School, was the first to commit to Syracuse in the Class of 2014. He did so as a running back, but entered training camp as a safety. During training camp, Howard was suspended from the team for missing curfew and did not attend the Orange’s trip to Fort Drum.At that time, Howard spent time with graduate assistant and former SU linebacker Siriki Diabate. Shafer said Howard “learned his lesson” after rejoining the team, and there hasn’t been an announcement of whether he’ll be able to do so again.
