UCLA safety Tevin McDonald has been released from the team after violating team policy.

“It’s disappointing to me and disappointing for Tevin,” Coach Jim Mora said. “I have known him since he was a young boy. On a personal level, it’s disappointing. I hope everything turns out well for him.”

McDonald, a starter the last two seasons, was suspended for the Holiday Bowl in December after a third positive test drug test.
