Notre Dame senior linebacker Te’von Coney was sentenced to a year of probation after pleading guilty to possession of marijuana, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.
Coney entered into a plea agreement on the charge stemming from an arrest with four teammates in August 2016 in Fulton Country, Ind.
The 6-foot-1, 240-pound Coney wrote a one-word posting on his Twitter account on Tuesday morning: “Blessed.”
Coney registered a team-high 116 tackles, including 11.5 for loss, and 3.0 sacks for Notre Dame during his junior season in 2017.
Indiana State Police arrested Coney and four teammates in August 2016 after a trooper reported finding a loaded handgun and marijuana in their car.
All five players were chargers with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, and three of the other players were charged with possession of a handgun without a license.
