Michigan suspends 3 players for Outback Bowl
Team does not specify which rules were violated
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan coach Brady Hoke has suspended cornerback J.T. Floyd, punter Will Hagerup, and linebacker Brandin Hawthorne for a violation of team rules.
Hoke said in an announcement Sunday that the three players will not travel with the 19th-ranked Wolverines for the Outback Bowl against No. 11 South Carolina because each of them used poor judgment. He didn’t specify which team rules were broken.
Floyd is a starting cornerback and Hagerup is the team’s top punter. Hawthorne is a backup linebacker.
Hoke said it’s an honor to play football for the University of Michigan and there are high standards and expectations for everyone that represents the program.
