ANN ARBOR -- The decision to dismiss senior defensive lineman Frank Clark was made early Monday afternoon.

After details emerged from his Sunday morning arrest, he is being charged with one count of misdemeanor and count of assault after attacking his live-in girlfriend in a hotel room in Sandusky, Ohio.

Michigan football coach Brady Hoke released a statement announcing Clark's dismissal Monday.

"Frank Clark has been dismissed for violating team rules from the Michigan football program," said Hoke in a statement. "This is a tragic situation. Our student-athletes will be held accountable when their actions fail to meet the standard we have at Michigan. There is a legal process that will occur and we respect that process."

Hoke is expected to meet with the media during his regularly-scheduled Monday press conference at 12:30 p.m.

Michigan (5-5, 3-3 Big Ten East) is preparing to face Maryland on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
