Hogan Suspended

WVU head coach Bill Stewart has announced that starting cornerback Brandon Hogan is indefinitely suspended from the Mountaineer football team.

Bill Stewart, speaking at he regularly schedule press conference on Tuesday, said that "he, and he alone" will determine Hogan's punishment and possible return to the team.

Stewart did not specify a possible length of the suspension nor spell out any conditions Hogan might have to meet were he allowed to rejoin the team. However, from the tenor of the statements made, it does not appear as if Hogan will be dismissed from the team.

The senior cornerback was arrested early Sunday morning while driving the wrong way on a one-way street in downtown Morgantown, W.Va. He was charged with DUI and released on bond.

Stewart mentioned Brodrick Jenkins, Pat Miller and Brantwon Bowser as candidates to replace Hogan in the lineup for this Saturday's game against Marylans, which would indicate the suspension will last at least through this weekend.

Through two games this year, Hogan had 11 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup. His career totals include 145 tackles, five interceptions, 19 pass breakups and three fumble recoveries.
