A little background on Hazelton

Caught this over in the DN yesterday...

When former USC wide receiver Vidal Hazelton asked for his official release, it occurred just a couple days after a pair of assistant coaches engaged in an argument about Hazelton during halftime of the Notre Dame game.

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, who is now Washington's head coach, and wide receivers coach John Morton got into argument just before the start of the third quarter regarding Hazelton, who played sparingly against the Irish.

Sources said Morton was frustrated with Hazelton. But Sarkisian said it was just a heat-of-moment situation and was not unusual for coaches to get emotional during a game.

"Everyone is on steroids during a game," Sarkisian said. "It was just football stuff. It happens all the time."

I think thats a little vague.

What was the argument about? We have read that Dexter Hazelton's dad was no fan of Sarkisian and if we are to believe that Morton had issues I guess the kid saw the writing on the wall.

I still see some pieces of the puzzle missing, not that it matters, Hazelton is gone so that is that. I also know that Morton has been known to get in some of the players faces. I t will be interesting to see how his position as the OC affects the rest of the offense.

I am just happy that this chapter is over, I wish Hazelton all the luck in the world where ever he ends up...
