TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Four Alabama players have been dismissed from the team following their arrests after two robberies on campus.

Alabama coach Nick Saban said Wednesday that linebackers D.J. Pettway and Tyler Hayes, safety Eddie Williams and H-back Brent Calloway "are no longer associated with the football program.''

Saban says the players' "actions do not reflect the spirit and character we want our organization to reflect.''

Pettway, Williams and Hayes are charged with two counts of second-degree robbery. Williams and Calloway are charged with fraudulent use of a credit card.

Williams confessed to robbing a student who was punched in the head and face and kicked in the ribs and back. He said Pettway and Hayes watched him commit another robbery from a nearby vehicle about an hour later.

Hayes also confessed.
