    ATLANTA - The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have dismissed star running back Dedrick Mills from the program.

    Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein has learned Mills was dismissed for "a violation of team rules."

    Mills had 771 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2016.

    Earlier in the preseason, Mills said, “you always want to be on the field” and that “I’m going to keep myself on the field this year.”

    The university is expected to address the situation at a 4:45 p.m. news conference. WATCH Channel 2 Action News for updates.
