Longhorns coach Charlie Strong also dismissed running back Jalen Overstreet and safety Chevoski Collins on Thursday for violation of team rules. Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander were indefinitely suspended after they were charged with sexual assault on Thursday.

Overall, Strong dismissed three players, and indefinitely suspended two, on Thursday.

As a junior last year, Bergeron rushed 73 times for 362 yards. He rushed for 1,392 yards and 25 touchdowns in three years, plus added 200 receiving yards.
