ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt announced redshirt freshman Zach Mettenberger has been kicked off the team for violating team rules.
Mettenberger threw two touchdowns in Georgia's spring game earlier this month but already was facing at least a one-game suspension after being arrested on alcohol charges during spring break.
The team didn't reveal if Mettenberger was involved in another incident, or if his dismissal from the team was the result of more details becoming known from his arrest.
The Bulldogs now have a two-man race for starting quarterback: redshirt freshman Aaron Murray and junior Logan Gray.
