Will Muschamp wants players to realize actions have consequences
Florida coach Will Muschamp made his rounds at the ESPN coaches Car Wash today, and the subject of middle linebacker Antonio Morrison was among the topics the Gators' head coach addressed.
Muschamp said he talked with Morrison's parents, who live outside of Chicago, Monday night and again expressed his disappointment.
Morrison was arrested for the second time in 35 days on Sunday after he was accused of interfering with a police animal and resisting arrest without violence after he allegedly barked at a police canine who was sitting in the police car. The dog's officer was responding to an official call.
"I've suspended him from all team activities at this point," Muschamp said. "It's all about making good choices and decisions, and he made a poor choice and decision to be out at 3 o'clock in the morning. And that's No. 1 with me."
Morrison was the projected starter for the season, but has been suspended for at least the first two games.
"But we'll bring him back in camp, and we'll work through this process with him," Muschamp said. "Again, it's about educating young people. And they've got to understand when they make these mistakes there are consequences in our program."
