Gators TE Leonard Plans to Transfer, Day Two Recap in Alabama
The Florida Gators will try and improve on a 7-6 football record from last year, but they'll have do it without tight end A.C. Leonard.
Head coach Will Muschamp confirmed Leonard would transfer from the program.
The incoming sophomore was suspended after being charged with simple domestic battery in Mid-February, and missed the Orange and Blue spring football game as another disciplinary action.
But Muschamp gave periodic updates on the troubled tight end, and stressed he continued to do what was asked of him, and continued to work out with the team in the off-season conditioning program.
Muschamp finished his opening remarks to the media and said, "Sometimes it just doesn't work and it wasn't working in this situation. So he needs to move on."
Leonard has not revealed where he will transfer to, or when he may be eligible to play football again.
Meanwhile, day two of SEC Media Days featured a record-six league coaches in a single day, and sports director Chris Price took notice of the fickle business of being a coach in football's most dominant conference.
