Logan Brown dismissed from Wisconsin football program after striking teammate in practice

MADISON, Wis. – Logan Brown’s impending transfer from Wisconsin, which the redshirt junior offensive lineman announced Wednesday night via Twitter, was sparked by an incident during practice.

People with knowledge of the situation told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel early Thursday morning that Brown struck a teammate during practice one day earlier.

That led to a meeting with interim head coach Jim Leonhard and the decision was made that it would be best if Brown pursued other opportunities.

“The reality of what happened is that there was an internal incident here within the program and Logan Brown was dismissed from the program,” he said. “It was not a choice. He was dismissed from the program.”

Recently adopted transfer rules give players 30 days after a coaching change to enter the portal.

Wisconsin athletic Chris McIntosh fired head coach Paul Chryst on Oct. 2. If Brown waited until after the 30-day window he would have had to wait until Dec. 5 to enter the portal.

A message left with Brown was not returned.
