Vanderbilt University's athletic administration kicked 21-year-old starting wide receiver Chris Boyd off the team late Tuesday afternoon.

The decision has been made four days after he pleaded guilty of helping conceal an alleged on-campus gang rape of an unconscious 21-year-old student that occurred June 23.

According to CNN, the star athlete pleaded guilty to one count of being an accessory after the fact.

As part of his plea deal with the prosecutors, Boyd agreed to pay court costs; face 11 months and 29 days of unsupervised probation and 'testify truthfully' against the four accused men he helped.

Upon completion of the probation, his record will be cleared.

After the University's athletic administration conducted a review of the court hearing, Beth Fortune, the school's vice chancellor for public affairs said, "The review concluded that Mr. Boyd's admitted actions are clearly inconsistent with the high standards of behavior expected of our student-athletes."

Tom Thurman, Davidson County Deputy District Attorney stated in court that on June 23, Brandon Vandenburg, one of the accused, took an unconscious university student into a building on campus. Thurman said that three others - Jaborian 'Tip' McKenzie, Brandon Banks and Cory Batey, charged with the rape, also joined him.

"Different individuals" then sexually assaulted the young woman, the prosecutor said, as captured by CNN affiliate WSMV. Vandenburg texted the 21-year-old Boyd a picture of her, which Boyd promptly erased so his girlfriend wouldn't see it, Thurman told CNN.

Vandenburg then contacted Boyd, 'saying the victim had been messed with in the hall and sexually assaulted in the room and he needed Mr. Boyd to come over,' Thurman said.

Thurman said that Boyd and two other people then moved the unconscious, partly dressed woman to a room and left.

During the investigation, they discovered text conversations of Boyd with Vandenburg and Batey.

- 'Tell the boys to delete that sh**. I'm looking out for your a**.'

- Boyd texted his girlfriend saying 'got everything cleared up' and 'deleted everything.'

- Boyd also explained how he helped clear the rape scene and referring to the young woman, he said, 'she doesn't know anything that happened.'
