No speculation this time, Me'co Brown is no longer a Huskie, but left on his own accord.
NIU head coach Jerry Kill said in a press release today that Brown has withdrawn from school for personal reasons. The junior back was earlier speculated to have been kicked off the team by Kill, but those reports were unfounded.
Brown was on the team as of Jan. 12 despite missing the International Bowl for family reasons.
In two seasons, Brown gained 1,155 rushing yards on 258 carries , and started14 games for the Huskies. He was second on the 2009 team with 645 rushing yards on 148 carries and four touchdowns.
More to come on the impact of Brown's departure, filling the void, and any other information that comes available.
