BLACKSBURG, Virginia — Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has dismissed kicker Cody Journell from the team.
Beamer announced the senior's dismissal Wednesday, citing a violation of team policies. Beamer declined further comment.
Journell made 10 of 16 field goal attempts and 24 of 26 extra-point tries this season.
The school says Journell's replacement hasn't been determined. The Hokies (7-3, 4-2 ACC) host Maryland (5-4, 1-4) on Saturday in Blacksburg.
Beamer also had suspended Journell for Virginia Tech's Sept. 21 game against Marshall for an unspecified violation of team rules.
Journell pleaded guilty in May 2012 to misdemeanor trespassing. He was suspended from the team for seven months and missed Virginia Tech's 2012 Sugar Bowl appearance.
