Pittsburgh CB Titus Howard suspended for 2014 season
Pitt coach Paul Chryst announced Friday that cornerback Titus Howard will miss the entire 2014 season, but remain with the program.
Pittsburgh suffered a setback in its defensive backfield, losing a projected starting cornerback for the entire 2014 season because of disciplinary reasons.
Paul Chryst announced Friday that sophomore Titus Howard has been suspended for the entire season. Howard will be able to practice with the team, but he will not appear in any games.
Howard totaled 21 tackles and two pass breakups in 11 games of action as a freshman in 2013. He was expected to start opposite veteran starter Lafayette Pitts. According to Sam Werner, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, junior Trenton Coles will likely start in Howard's place.
Pitt's secondary was already a concern heading into 2014 with the losses of cornerback K'Waun Williams and safety Jason Hendricks (75 combined career starts). The defense as a whole only returns a handful of starters and will likely rely on its experience at linebacker to lead the group.
