Former LSU star defensive back Tyrann Mathieu will not play football anywhere during the 2012 season, according to a report.
Tyrone Mathieu, Tyrann's father, said his son remains at Right Step recovery center in Houston under the watch of former NBA player John Lucas.
"Tyrann is focused on addressing his issues with Mr. Lucas," Tyrone told ESPN. "(Lucas') story speaks for itself. He can help Tyrann and he can help our family."
Mathieu, a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011, was dismissed from the Tigers earlier this month after breaking an unspecified athletic department rule.
Mathieu had interest from other college football programs and was thought to be going the FCS route, or possibly, transferring to another Division I school to be eligible for play in 2013.
