Georgia will not suspend DeLoach or Taylor, who enter pre-trial intervention program

They will not be getting off scot-free, but Georgia will not suspend defensive end James DeLoach or defensive lineman John Taylor for any amount of time during the upcoming football season. According to the Associated Press, both players will receive “significant additional internal discipline,” although the details of those disciplinary actions is unconfirmed.

DeLoach and Taylor were two of four Georgia football players arrested and charged for theft by deception back in March. They, along with safety Tray Matthews and receiver Uriah LeMay, all appeared in Clarke County State Court on Thursday and agreed to complete a pre-trial intervention program in exchange for having the charges dropped.

“Guys aren’t going to be perfect and when they do something that needs discipline, we are going to follow through on it,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said following the arrests. Richt later said he would not rule anything out, including suspensions, but it was important to allow the legal system play out first.

Matthews was dismissed by the university on Wednesday and is now looking over his transfer options. LeMay was previously granted a release from his scholarship and has moved on to Charlotte.

    Does any program have more players arrested then Georgia?

    If you are going to run a half way house Coach Richt, at least have a Natty under your belt.

    MR though he was an up front coach. Now he ranks right there with UM and LK. I guess winning is more important then doing the right thing. Just another stupid coach.

    It is sad when you have a program that has as many criminals on it and you still are not relevant at the end of the year or in a major bowl. GA maybe it’s time for a change

    So what is true here? The sensationalized headline that says “will not suspend”, or the actual quote in the body of the article that says suspensions have not been ruled out?

    It looks like he said suspensions hadn’t been ruled out before the pretrial intervention was agreed to. They are now.

    They must be his best actors to flop on command opening against Clemson.
