UNC's Marvin Austin Suspended Indefinitely

University of North Carolina head coach Butch Davis has suspended senior defensive tackle Marvin Austin indefinitely.

"This decision is not a result of the ongoing NCAA review," says Davis. "Marvin has violated team rules and has neglected his responsibilities to the team."

Austin has been projected as a possible NFL first-round pick. He will not play Saturday night when the No. 18 Tar Heels face No. 21 LSU in Atlanta.

The NCAA has made two trips to North Carolina this summer to look into whether Austin and receiver Greg Little received improper benefits from agents. Both players have been working with the second team for much of the preseason and haven't spoken with reporters.
