OT Taylor Gadbois no longer with Hurricanes

The University of Miami football team dismissed a very valuable player on Thursday. According to Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald, Taylor Gadbois is no longer a Hurricane.

Taylor took to Twitter and broke the news before Miami could.


Coach Al Golden released the following statement about the situation: “Taylor is a bright young man and we wish him the best in his future academic and athletic endeavors.”

Gadbois was previoulsy in trouble for unspecified reasons and was expected to be suspended for the start of the season.  The number of games was undetermined.

The 6-8, 321 pound junior offensive tackle was set to contribute to an offensive line that lost 3 starters from last year.  Including, left takle Ereck Flowers.

The dismissal comes only a week after Gadbois stated that he is confident in becoming the starting left tackle this upcoming season.

Miami will need a strong offensive line to protect its ACC Rookie of the Year quarterback Brad Kaaya, and to continue their success running the football.

The Hurricanes season begins in September, and to lose a player who was supposed to protect the blindside of their starting quarterback is troubling to say the least.

Its safe to say Coach Goldens seat is getting warmer and warmer.
