Maryland Suspends Two Wide Receivers For Rival Game v. WVU

We don’t know if then UConn head coach Randy Edsall had a reputation for being a no-nonsense kind of guy prior to coming to College Park, but ever since he replaced the popular Ralph Freidgen, he has made it clear things will be done his way.

The offseason was marked by behavior related suspension and the removal of the players’ names from the back of the Terps’ jersey (all of them! The players and the jerseys).
Now, Edsall has announced that two senior wide receivers responsible for 82 yards and a touchdown between them in Maryland’s opening victory over Miami have been suspended indefinitely. 
Edsall announced yesterday that Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree were suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team rules. 
“The expectation of our program is for our student-athletes to conduct themselves in the proper manner academically, athletically and socially,” Edsall said. “Unfortunately, Quintin and Ronnie fell short of these expectations.”

The Prince George’s County district court database indicates that Tyler was charged on Thursday with second-degree assault. His trial is scheduled for Nov. 1.

There is no timetable for their reinstatement.
