ESPN college football analysis Joe Schad is reporting that Marshall has shown interest in former Auburn running back Michael Dyer.
During his freshman and sophomore seasons with the Tigers Dyer rushed for 2,335 yards and 15 touchdowns. One of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the SEC, he was also named MVP of the 2011 BCS National Championship game.
Dyer left Auburn after the 2011 regular season following his suspension for a failed marijuana test. He transferred to Arkansas State but never saw the field as Dyer was dismissed after being pulled over for speeding with a gun and marijuana in his car.
Taking a break from football, Dyer attended Arkansas Baptist last year to concentrate on his academics. According to various reports UAB, Troy, and Western Kentucky are also interested in his services.
