ATHENS -- Georgia coach Mark Richt says starting safety Tray Matthews won't return to the team in 2014.<br />
Richt, who did not say why Matthews has been dismissed, didn't mention the player's status while speaking with reporters earlier Tuesday but made the announcement in a statement several hours later.<br />
The coach says, "We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right."<br />
Matthews and three former Georgia teammates are scheduled to be arraigned in Athens-Clarke County court Thursday after being charged three months ago with illegally cashing scholarship checks.<br />
Matthews, who started six of the eight games he played as a freshman, had 23 solo tackles. He missed five games with a hamstring injury.<br />
Matthews' Twitter account said he plans to transfer to Auburn or Louisville.
