ATHENS, Ga. — Brenton Cox has been released from the University of Georgia football team, according to a report from on Monday.

UGASports reports the sophomore linebacker was dismissed on Sunday.

Head coach Kirby Smart has not made comment or issued a statement regarding the dismissal. UGA defensive coordinator Dan Lanning was asked about Cox Monday morning and deflected the question to Smart.
