Naijiel Hale, son of the late g-funk crooner Nate Dogg, has been dismissed from the University of Washington football program by head coach Chris Petersen for "disciplinary reasons."
Hale, a sophomore cornerback, played in every game last year as a true freshman and was expected to be a full-time starter for the Huskies this season.
At both Boise State and in his short time at Washington, Petersen has been adamant about filling his roster only with "Our Kind of Guys," or "OKGs" as he sometimes calls them. Hale's dismissal marks the second time Petersen has kicked a starting cornerback off the team since he was prior to the 2014 season. Marcus Peters was similarly dismissed midway through the last season, although Peters still went on to become a first round pick (18th overall) of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hale will now look to transfer to another school. He posted several statements on Twitter and Instagram after the announcement.
