Florida quarterback Will Grier will reportedly appeal his one-year suspension by the NCAA for using performance enhancing drugs.
Gatorcountry.com reported Grier’s intent to appeal.
“Upon testing positive, the athlete has 45 days to file documents that will be used in the appeals process. Hiring outside counsel, which Grier did, typically sets back the process as the athlete and their representation gather all of the necessary paperwork and documentation needed to argue their appeal to the NCAA committee,” the report reads.
“Sources told Gator Country that the University of Florida, Jim McElwain, Jeremy Foley and the UAA have been behind Grier since the beginning of this process and continue to support him throughout the appeals process.”
Grier was issued the suspension last month and will miss the first six games of the 2016 season if his appeal is denied.
The law firm Morgan and Morgan is representing Grier through the appeals process. One of the attorneys is a Florida alum and father of Florida punter Johnny Townsend .
