UI Receiver Faces DUI Charge

Idaho senior wide receiver Dezmon Epps was arrested for driving under the influence Sunday morning, The Argonaut reported Monday. The Argonaut is the university's student newspaper. Epps had 79 catches for 980 yards and four touchdowns in 2013, his first season in the Idaho program. Epps transferred from City College of San Francisco. "I am aware of the situation involving Dezmon Epps and I am disappointed in his actions. I will review the matter and it will be handled swiftly and decisively. Our student-athletes will understand that there will be discipline in our program. They will learn the responsibility they have in representing themselves, the football program, and the University of Idaho in the right manner. We will hold our student-athlete’s accountable for their actions at all times as character and integrity will always be a priority in our program.
