MIAMI (AP) -Miami quarterback Robert Marve has been suspended for the season opener for an incident stemming back to last year, the Miami Herald reported on its Web site Saturday.
Marve was expected to be named the starter against Charleston Southern on August 28.
Marve's father, Eugene Marve, confirmed the suspension to the Herald and said that his son was very upset about it.
Miami officials declined to confirm the suspension Saturday.
Robert Marve, a redshirt freshman, was arrested on October 31 for smashing a car mirror. He was initially charged with two misdemeanors, but they were later lifted.
Marve won a state championship and was named ``Mr. Florida Football'' in 2006 as a senior at Tampa Plant.
He redshirted last season after breaking his wrist in a car crash in July 2007.
