'Last Chance U' Star Isaiah Wright, Murder Charge Dropped In Plea DealIsaiah Wright — the talented running back featured on the Netflix docuseries “Last Chance U” — is being released from jail after cutting a plea deal in his murder case … TMZ Sports has learned. 

Wright was arrested back in Sept. 2017 on 1 count of criminal homicide in the stabbing death of an 18-year-old man. Wright has been locked up ever since. 

Now, we’ve learned … the 20-year-old appeared in a Tennessee courtroom on Wednesday where he agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors. 

The terms of the deal … Wright pled guilty to 1 count of facilitation of aggravated robbery (which we’re told means he “furnished assistance without the intent to commit robbery”) — and in exchange the murder charge was dropped … according to his attorney, Kevin Angel. 

As for his sentence, Wright got 5 years probation and time served — which means he will be released from jail ASAP. 

Unclear if Wright will try to resume his football career — or try to move on with his life in a different field.
