PITTSBURGH—University of Pittsburgh head football coach Paul Chryst announced today two disciplinary actions and a player transfer.
Chryst has suspended junior offensive lineman Juantez Hollins for the 2012 season due to violation of team policy. Hollins (Aliquippa, Pa./Aliquippa) played in 13 games last year, starting seven.
“Even though he will not play in any games, Juantez will remain an active and valuable member of our program and be accountable every day in practice and in the classroom,” Chryst said.
Additionally, incoming freshman receiver Chris Davis will be suspended for the first week of preseason training camp for disciplinary reasons. The Panthers open camp on Aug. 6 and Davis (Austintown, Ohio/Austintown Fitch) will be permitted to join the team on Aug. 12.
Chryst also announced that sophomore quarterback Mark Myers has left the program. Myers (Cleveland, Ohio/St. Ignatius) played in four games last year, completing 1-of-4 passes for five yards.
