Charlie Strong had to make his first major disciplinary decision on Sunday, as the new Texas Blog Photo - Texas Football: Longhorns Kick Two Players Off Team for Violation of Team RulesLonghorns head coach dismissed rising seniors Chet Moss and Leroy Scott for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Moss, a full back that was basically a special teams grunt, appeared in 27 games through his three seasons and left four tackles in the stat book. He was suspended for the 2013 Thanksgiving night game at Texas Tech for violation of team rules, as well.

Scott, a defensive back and former high school All-American, was projected to see more playing time this upcoming fall. He played in 38 games during his Longhorn career, compiling 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks en route to a co-special teams player of the year award in 2013.

Neither player was going to see the field as a starter this spring, according to BurntOrangeNation.com. Both were set to be with the second team as backups—Moss behind Alex De La Torre and Scott second to Adrian Colbert at strong safety.

Strong is adamant about his new team rules and bringing a culture change to Texas, so it’s probably safe to assume that he’s currently weeding the weak links out and that these two won’t be the first to go before the opening kickoff in August.
