“Florida State Head Coach Jimbo Fisher announced today that junior receiver Da’Vante Phillips has been indefinitely suspended from the football team in accordance with athletic department policy. He will have no further comment at this time.”
It is FSU’s policy to suspend student-athletes if they are charged with a felony: “In the event the student-athlete is charged with a felony, absent extraordinary circumstances as determined by the administration, he/she will not be permitted to represent FSU Athletics in game competition until such time as the charge is resolved and all court, university and athletics department conditions for reinstatement have been met.”
