COLUMBIA, S.C. (April 6, 2011) – University of South Carolina senior quarterback Stephen Garcia has been suspended indefinitely from the football program, Athletics Director Eric Hyman announced today.

“Being a student-athlete at the University of South Carolina is a privilege, not a right,” said Hyman. “We have expectations for our student-athletes and we make them aware that there are consequences for their actions. Stephen has exhibited behavior that is unacceptable for one of our student-athletes. Therefore, he has forfeited the privilege to participate in any football related activity until further notice.”

The Gamecocks are preparing for their annual Garnet & Black Spring Game, which will be held Saturday, April 9, at 1 p.m. in Williams-Brice Stadium. Admission is free.
