Dyer tweets to Prairie View, coach says no contact made

LITTLE ROCK (ArkansasOnline.com) - Lying low since his dismissal from Arkansas State, running back Michael Dyer pecked out a tweet late Monday announcing his latest destination in trying to revive his career: Prairie View A&M.

Dyer, who was dismissed July 29 for a violation of team rules, supposedly wrote on his Twitter account.

There's only one hiccup: No one told Prairie View A&M Coach Heishma Northern of the Panthers' newest addition.

And even if Dyer were to seek refuge at a Football Championship Subdivision program, it's not clear whether NCAA rules would permit the Little Rock native and former Auburn running back from suiting up immediately this season.

"I have not talked to anyone on Mike's behalf, and I'm pretty sure some of my players may have tweeted back and forth with him," Northern said. "I don't know if anyone on my staff has."
