University of Montana head football coach Mick Delaney announced on Monday that three players, redshirt freshman linebacker Nick Holt, junior linebacker John Paul Kanontata’a and junior offensive lineman Kjelby Oiland have been suspended for one game. The suspension comes from a violation of team rules. The three will not travel to Ogden, Utah for Saturday’s Big Sky Conference game at Weber State.
“It is an unfortunate situation, but expectations are clear,” Delaney said. “I will not go into particulars about why the three were suspended, but I can say it does not involve law enforcement. I feel it is my responsibility to hold players accountable.”
