Former Auburn running back confirms he's not transferring to Pittsburg State

Updated July 20 at 1:10 PM CST:  In a press conference this afternoon Michael Dyer and Arkansas State Coach Guz Malzahn confirmed that the former Auburn running back will be staying at Arkansas State.

Dyer denied ever being in contact with Pittsburg State and said he plans on being a good coach and teammate from the sideline for Arkansas State this season.

Posted July 19, 2012 at 6:07 PM CST:  Michael Dyer, the MVP of Auburn's BCS National Championship is expected to make a decision on his future within a few days, and for a brief time on Thursday there was speculation he could be coming to Pittsburg State.

In two seasons with Auburn, Dyer ran for 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns.  But in March of 2011 Dyer was arrested for armed robbery and was dismissed from the Auburn football program.

In January 2012 the Little Rock, Arkansas native transferred to Arkansas State.  But earlier this month the NCAA denied Dyer's request to be able to play for Arkansas State for the upcoming 2012 football season.

Late Wednesday evening a blogger with a popular college football news site posted there was speculation that Dyer was looking at transferring from Arkansas State, possibly to Pittsburg State.

Early on Thursday a source close to the situation told us that the likelihood of Dyer transferring to Pittsburg State was greater than 50-50.  However, as the day progressed it looks more likely that Dyer will stay at Arkansas State University.

Arkansas State Head Coach Guz Malzahn has declined to comment, but on ESPN's Scott Van Pelt Show Thursday afternoon he said of Dyer - "in the next day or two he'll figure out his future".  Coach Malzahn also mentioned that Dyer hasn't ruled out entering the NFL.

At 3:30 p.m. Thursday Arkansas State announced a press conference concerning Dyer's future.  That press conference will be held Friday at 1 p.m. with Coach Malzahn and Dyer in attendance.

The publisher of the Red Wolf Report, Luke Matheson, now says coaches at Arkansas State believe Dyer intends to stay at ASU but may have considered a transfer at one time.
