Players who get arrested, are put in jail and/or are given citations for inappropriate behavior do not belong on the team. No second chances [“Carroll calls off-field issues ‘real serious,’” Sports, May 21].

Coach Carroll is not paid to be a father figure for arrogant members of the team. If players to not know what is right and good, then let them go.
