Iowa's Derrell Johnson-Koulianos Arrested, Suspended Before Insight Bowl Vs. Missouri

We've got some bad news for one young man and some potentially good news for the Missouri Tigers. The Iowa Hawkeyes, who are scheduled to play Mizzou in the Insight Bowl on Dec. 28, have suspended WR Derrell Johnson-Koulianos after an arrest.

Johnson-Koulianos was arrested by Iowa City Police and faces multiple counts of possession of controlled substances, keeping a drug house and two counts of unlawful possession of a prescription drugs.

He's on $8,000 bail and Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz announced shortly after the news broke that he was suspended.

"I am highly disappointed to learn of the charges. Derrell has been suspended from all team activities."

Losing Johnson-Koulianos would be a blow to Iowa and, for Mizzou, it would make things slightly easier. He's Iowa's career leader in receptions and receiving yards. He was a first-team All-Big Ten pick this year and has 10 touchdowns on the season.
