Wide Receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos Dismissed By Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz After Drug Arrest

Kansas City – Standout wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos isn’t merely suspended from the Iowa football team after being charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine, running a drug house and unlawful possession of prescription drugs.

“He’ll not play again here,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said on a teleconference call on Thursday morning. Iowa plays Missouri in the Dec. 28 Insight Bowl game in Tempe, Ariz. Continue Reading...

Iowa Head Coach Kirk Ferentz said “He’ll not play again here…he’s dismissed” in reference to talented wide-receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos during a teleconference call.

Derrell was suspended on Tuesday after he was arrested on possession of controlled substances, keeping a drug house, unlawful possession of a prescription drug and the complaint says “selling large amounts of marijuana”.

Derrell had the whole nine yards here…marijuana, prescription drugs, and cocaine….and $3,000 cash…and the college student posted $8,000 bail the next day. This kid was ballin in Iowa!

But all jokes aside, Derrell Johnson was the all time leader in catches and reception yardage for the University of Iowa. He was speculated to be in the first round of next years draft.

This drug arrest has jeopardized his chances of going in the first 2 rounds or even being in next year’s draft.

This is a real tough lesson. Hopefully he recovers from this and has a respectable career. Anyone who has been to college knows what a drug house for a college kid is going to be….a party house.

He will miss a big bowl game in “The Insight Bowl” on Dec. 28, 2010 in Tempe, Arizona. He will be punished by his family, friends, and most importantly, the justice system.

The NFL should understand this and give the kid a chance to prove himself.

The days of Derrell Johnson on the cover of Sports Illustrated are over for now.

    Let’s get the facts straight. This player is not from University of Northern Iowa. And Kirk Ferentz is not the UNI football coach – he’s the head coach at the University of Iowa. Please correct this!
