Just as Georgia opened up their 2010 edition of summer camp, a former — and controversial — member of their football program has found a new home.
Mettenberger was arrested on five charges in March, dismissed by head coach Mark Richt in April and pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual battery in May for doing a hands-on examination of a 20-year-old female’s breasts and buttocks.
Butler head coach Troy Morell said his school did their due diligence on Mettenberger and feel comfortable bringing the young QB into the fold.
“We did our research on Zach,” Morrell told the Eagle. “We feel like he can be a great asset to our team, and it’s widely known that he paid the price for what he’s done and he’s trying to move on.”
With Mettenberger gone from a quarterback competition that was expected to last well into summer camp, Aaron Murray — by default, really — has grabbed the reins of the Bulldogs’ offense and, by all accounts, has been impressive in leading UGA through their voluntary summer workouts.
