PROVO, Utah (AP) -Brigham Young coach Bronco Mendenhall suspended six freshmen from practice for breaking undisclosed team rules and granted one of them a release so he can transfer.
Mendenhall announced the suspensions Thursday night. Five of the players are redshirting this season and did not make the trip for Saturday's game at New Mexico, team spokesman Jeff Reynolds said.
Reynolds said he could not elaborate on the rules violations that led to the suspensions.
Receiver Ryan Kessman asked to leave the team, and Mendenhall granted his scholarship release Friday.
The other players who were disciplined were David Angilau, Brannon Brooks, Ryan Love, Gary Nagy and G Pittman. Mendenhall said they would be allowed to return to practice after completing team-imposed discipline.
