Marvin Austin has been suspended indefinitely by North Carolina for a "violation of team rules," as ESPN's Joe Schad and Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel have tweeted. UNC itself offers a little more detail.
University of North Carolina head coach Butch Davis has suspended senior defensive tackle Marvin Austin indefinitely.
"This decision is not a result of the ongoing NCAA review," says Davis. "Marvin has violated team rules and has neglected his responsibilities to the team."
Note the tricky language: Though the decision isn't a result of an ongoing NCAA investigation, Austin's involvement in the investigation or in trying to clear his name on Facebook could certainly constitute a "violation of team rules."
It's not clear how long Austin will be suspended, but he will not play Saturday against LSU.
