Former Arizona Wildcats running back Orlando Bradford accepted a plea deal, pleading guilty to multiple aggravated assault charges.

He pleaded guilty Tuesday to two fourth-class felonies, including two counts of aggravated assault. He will be sentenced at 10 a.m. Nov. 20. Probation is not available as part of the deal, so he was taken into custody at the plea hearing and is being held in Pima County Jail with no bond.

Arizona Football Head Coach Rich Rodriguez kicked Bradford off the team after he was arrested in September 2016.

Bradford's girlfriend told police he attacked her and held her against her will.

Another woman came forward the next day and said Bradford assaulted her multiple times in the past.

He could face between two to eight years in prison.
