Former Mission Viejo standout safety Max Redfield, the Register's defensive player of the year in 2012, was dismissed from the Notre Dame footbal team on Sunday, the school announced.

Redfield was arrested Friday night and charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a handgun without a license.

Redfield, a senior, was exepcted to start at safety this season for the Fighting Irish.

Here is part of the statement released Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly on Sunday: 

"During the past 24 hours, I have met with each of the members of our team involved in the two incidents that occurred over the weekend, reviewed the evidence available to me, and consulted with others involved in the leadership of our team and the University. That process has only served to deepen my disappointment in the poor decisions made by these young men. Their conduct fell far short of what we expect from those who represent our football team and this great university.

"On the basis of my review, I have decided to dismiss Max Redfield from our football team and place Devin Butler on indefinite suspension. The other individuals, while not being separated from the team, will be subject to disciplinary measures internal to the football program."

In December, Redfield was sent home from the Fiesta Bowl for violating team rules.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Kelly recently praised Redfield's effort during the offseason and in recent practices.

"He's been that guy that everybody was hoping for out of high school," Kelly said last week. "He's playing at that level; he's at an elite level."
