On Monday, the North Carolina Tar Heels announced that they have suspended tight end Jack Tabb for the first half of the October 17th home game against the Miami Hurricanes. Tabb was ejected in Saturday’s game against the Virginia Tech Hokies for fighting.
After throwing a punch towards a Virginia Tech player after the two collided during a play, Tabb’s retaliation landed him a one half suspension per Atlantic Coast Conference rules according to the UNC Athletic Department.
Tabb was suspended for two games against Georgia Tech and East Carolina for violating an undisclosed team rule. Miami will mark the third game that Tabb will miss action for any length of time this season.
Tabb has fifty yards on the season for just three receptions. He recorded 144 yards last season in his ten appearances.
