PULLMAN, Wash. - Former Washington State defensive back Romeo Pellum said he quit the team this spring in a dispute with coach Paul Wulff.

Pellum had been indefinitely suspended, but said it was his decision to quit because he didn't feel he was being treated fairly.

Wulff has declined to go into depth about Pellum's situation, saying the player's departure was a mutual decision and that he was doing everything he could to help Pellum find another place to play.

Pellum said he was suspended before spring practice along with four others after the coaching staff learned of thefts that eventually led Pellum being charged with felony burglary counts in Whitman County.

Pellum is charged with two counts of residential burglary and two counts of second-degree theft.
