Antonio Brown, the former All-Pro wide receiver who has been released from two NFL teams in the last month, is back at school.

Brown has enrolled for four online courses at Central Michigan, where he played three seasons and is the school’s all-time leading receiver. Two of the classes began last week.

“Antonio Brown is currently enrolled in online degree completion coursework at Central Michigan University,” Central Michigan spokeswoman Heather Smith told the Detroit Free Press. “He does not attend classes on a CMU campus. His online courses began last week.”

According to a photo posted on Brown’s Instagram story account, his schedule has two other classes that begin Oct. 21.

Brown was not listed in CMU’s student directory as of 11:45 a.m. Monday.

Brown, who demanded a trade out of Pittsburgh in the offseason after nine incredibly productive seasons, did not make it to the start of the season with Oakland before he was released, losing out on $30 million in guaranteed salary. He was quickly acquired by the New England Patriots, the defending Super Bowl champions.

Among Brown’s recent legal and professional troubles, he is being sued by a former CMU gymnast, Britney Taylor, for sexual assault. He also faces allegations that he exposed himself to an artist he hired to paint a mural at his home. Brown has denied the accusations.

He has also been summoned to court in Miami-Dade County for a Tuesday morning deposition for the civil lawsuit against him for destroying a condo last year.

Brown left CMU after three seasons and was taken in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL draft. He is the program’s all-time leader in career receptions (305) and receptions in a season (110 in 2009).

On Sunday, Brown went on Twitter tirade, saying he was done playing in the NFL.
