Michigan dismissed suspended wide receiver Csont'e York from the football team on Monday night.

York, a sophomore, is facing two counts of assault and battery and one count of aggravated assault after an incident outside a bar in Ann Arbor, Mich., on July 18. Coach Brady Hoke had suspended York in early August for failing to meet team standards.

In surveillance video released by police, a man whom police identified as York punched another man outsdie Scorekeepers. The victim was reported to have sustained multiple jaw fractures.

"Representing the University of Michigan is a privilege and, while second chances are certainly deserved, sometimes it's better for everyone if that happens somewhere else," Hoke said in a statement. "Overall, I have been proud of how responsible our team has been this offseason and how hard they've worked to prepare for the season."

York, of Harper Woods, Mich., had no receptions during his freshman season in 2013.

The Wolverines open the 2014 season at home against Appalachian State on Aug. 30.
