After a potentially criminal situation, Trejan Bridges and Seth McGowan are no longer on OU’s football team, according to Sooners coach Lincoln Riley.
The two were tied to an armed robbery three weeks ago and since then Bridges’ apartment was searched as part of an investigation after a 911 caller said the two players had robbed him of marijuana at his Norman apartment.
“They’re not members of the program anymore and we wish them the very best going forward,” Riley said.
Police found a .45-caliber Glock handgun and “a bag of green substance appearing to be marijuana” during the search. No charges have been filed against either Bridges or McGowan and both Bridges and McGowan have denied the accusations.
Over his two seasons as a Sooner, Bridges has nine catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Meantime, McGowan finished his true freshman season in 2020 with 370 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 6.4 yards per carry.
McGowan announced in recent days that he had entered the transfer portal, likely to get ahead of the fact that he was being dismissed from the team.
The Oklahoma Sooners played their spring game on April 24 and they will open the season September 4th against Tulane.
