Marion Finished At Iowa

Posted:

University of Iowa wrestler Montell Marion has been permanently suspended from all activities related to the Hawkeye wrestling program. Marion, a sophomore who was the 2010 NCAA runner-up at 141 pounds, was arrested and charged with a DUI at 2:16 a.m. Tuesday in Iowa City.

"Due to Montell's recent and previous violations of our student-athlete code of conduct, we have no choice at this point but to remove him from the Iowa wrestling program," said University of Iowa Associate Athletic Director for Student Services Fred Mims. "It is very unfortunate. Montell has demonstrated great potential as a student and a student-athlete. He is someone the program will miss greatly. We all hope he is able to overcome this situation and find success in whatever he decides to do."

If Marion chooses to transfer to another NCAA institution, Mims said the University of Iowa Athletics Department would support a transfer pursuant to the NCAA's one-time transfer policy.

Marion posted a 37-9 record in two seasons with the Hawkeyes. He picked up his first all-America honor this season, placing third at the 2010 Big Ten Championships. The Des Moines, IA, native posted a 11-3 dual record, going 6-2 in Big Ten duals and scoring 45 team points in dual competition after earning the 141-pound spot in the lineup in late December.
