Wide receiver Kirk Merritt has been dismissed from the Texas A&M football team, according to an athletic department spokesman who confirmed Merritt no longer is listed on the Aggies roster. Merritt had exposed his genitals to two athletic department tutors in private sessions in about a 24-hour span in the Bright Football Complex last October, and later admitted to as much. His attorney cited a "bad case of jock itch" as Merritt's defense. Merritt has pleaded not guilty to two counts of indecent exposure following his arrest last fall. An A&M official said coach Kevin Sumlin is on a plane to Philadelphia for the NFL Draft and couldn't immediately be reached on Wednesday afternoon.
