UConn starting lineman abruptly leaves Huskies

Suspended for the first three games of the season for violating unspecified team rules, guard Erik Kuraczea was reinstated Sept. 19 and started the next two games at left guard for UConn.

This past weekend, however, and following the Huskies’ bye, Kuraczea wasn’t listed on the school’s two deep depth chart ahead of their loss to Rutgers.

Three days later, the redshirt sophomore is no longer listed in the school’s registry, either.

While he would not get into the specifics of the situation, head coach Randy Edsall confirmed Tuesday that Kuraczea has withdrawn from school and will seek a transfer when the calendar flips from 2010 to 2011.

“Erik Kuraczea has withdrawn from the university due to personal reasons and he will be looking to go to another college in January,” Edsall said. “That’s all I have to say on that situation, but he’s no longer with us. He’s withdrawn from the university due to personal reasons and what he told me is that he’ll be looking to go to another institution in January.”

With Kuraczea gone, Mathieu Olivier will slide back into the starting left guard role.
