DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Duke linebacker Michael Tauiliili has been suspended indefinitely for violating team policies.
``It concerns me and is disappointing when one of our players puts himself in a difficult circumstance off the football field,'' coach Ted Roof said Sunday. ``I will investigate and deal with this situation with the seriousness it deserves. Michael will be suspended indefinitely from the team until we have learned all the facts.''
No further details were provided, and a school spokesman wasn't immediately available for comment Sunday evening.
Tauiliili, a junior from Texas, led the Blue Devils in tackles in each of his first two seasons.
As a freshman in 2005, he posted 92 tackles and received freshman All-America and Atlantic Coast Conference defensive freshman of the year honors.
Last fall, Tauiliili ranked eighth in the ACC with 7.8 tackles per game.
In 23 career games at Duke, Tauiliili registered 186 tackles and 20 for loss while sharing the program's most outstanding defensive player award in 2005 and 2006.
