Posted Jun 23, 2009

Coach Stockstill announced that WR Eldred King is suspended for the 2009 season.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee Head Football Coach Rick Stockstill announced today he is suspending senior Eldred King for the 2009 season.

"Eldred made a choice that let his teammates, coaches, and University down," said Stockstill. "This program has a set of core values that we must abide by on a daily basis. Discipline is not always dismissal from the team, it is trying to educate and correct behavior.

"Eldred has been excellent in the classroom and on the field and hopefully will learn from his mistakes. I have set guidelines for him to follow and if he adheres to them he will be able to play his senior season."

King, who has a redshirt year available, shared the team lead in 2008 with 51 receptions for 598 yards and four touchdowns.
