Mark Richt confirmed that sophomore tight end Michael Irvin II will return from suspension this Saturday for Miami’s road contest at North Carolina.
Right said in his Tuesday press conference that Irvin II is ”out of the doghouse” after not being allowed to play in the Hurricanes’ victory vs. Syracuse.
Right explained to the Miami Herald on Sunday why Irvin II was held out.
“Irvin hasn’t done what he’s supposed to do off the field and until he does, we won’t let him play,” Richt said.
With Irvin II back, it will provide Miami with some extra depth as it faces a 1-7 Tar Heels squad hungry for its first home win of the season.
Irvin II is the son of NFL Hall of Fame and former Miami Hurricanes wide receiver Michael Irvin.
The tight end missed last year’s Russell Athletic Bowl due to violating unspecified team rules. He has 3 catches for 39 yards this season as Miami’s backup tight end.
Miami’s contest at North Carolina is set for noon (EST) and will be televised on ESPN2.
