If the school dismisses you from its team, isn't release implied?
That's a real crappy way to conduct business (and it is a business). This kind of stuff will provide a nice little way to undermine KU in recruiting.
There's some speculation that it's in response to issues they've had getting the kid on campus in the first place.
Berglund graduated high school early and enrolled at KU last December. He arrived on campus in January and began taking classes but quickly returned to Colorado because of what the university called “personal circumstances.”

Since that time, however, sources have said that Berglund has not been present at voluntary summer workouts and has continued to deal with legal issues back in Colorado.
He didn't play for them this fall. I don't buy a new coaching staff taking it out on a kid they don't even know, however. I prefer to believe that Weis is the ********* we've always known him to be and is doing this because that's just the way he is.
The kid must have found Charlie's secret stash of glazed donuts in the team facility.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe in a case like this if you sit out a year w/o a scholarship at another school you can then accept a scholarship.
So basically, you would have to use your redshirt/transfer year without a scholarship.
The kids has been a head case his whole time there (or not there). If he wanted to be released he probably should have handled things more professionally.
That said, I'm interested to hear KU's side of the story before making an judgment.
According to Former KU quarterback Brock Berglund issues statement saying KU won't grant release | Tale of the Tait | KUsports.com the timing of the thing was that he was denied the ability to talk to other coaches, then he skipped a team meeting, then he was kicked off the team. At least the way I read it.
If they don't release him from his scholarship won't it count toward their 85 'ship limit?
Ahh, the old "you're fired but you can't look for another job" routine. You are all class, Chuck.
