Linebacker Mason won't return to Pitt

Linebacker Dan Mason, who recovered from a serious knee injury to play in five games for Pitt last season, is no longer with the team. Mason, who had one year of eligibility remaining, did not practice in the spring while dealing with off-the-field issues.

Mason, a Penn Hills High School graduate, missed most of two seasons after suffering nerve and ligament damage and a dislocated kneecap against Miami on Sept. 23, 2010.

Also, former Pitt offensive lineman Arthur Doakes, who was suspended for the BBVA Compass Bowl last season but participated in spring drills, has transferred to Stony Brook (N.Y.) University.
