Safety Josh Furman suspended from Michigan football team, spokesman says
Reserve safety Josh Furman has been suspended from the Michigan football team, a program spokesman confirmed Monday afternoon.
No other details are being provided.
The 6-foot-2, 208-pound sophomore appeared in 12 games last year, but mostly on special teams. He played twice at safety.
Furman recorded 10 tackles last season and also blocked a punt against Nebraska.
Defensive coordinator Greg Mattison was asked last week about Furman's play this spring, but referred the question to head coach Brady Hoke.
Hoke typically is the only one who comments on personnel matters. He next speaks to the media on Tuesday during the Big Ten's conference call with reporters.
The suspension was first reported on Twitter by GoBlueWolverine.com's Sam Webb.
