Pitt sophomore cornerback Titus Howard was suspended for the entire 2014 season for disciplinary reasons, Panthers coach Paul Chryst announced today.
Howard, a Clairton graduate, played in 11 games as a freshman last season, totaling 21 tackles and two pass breakups. He was projected as a starter for the Panthers this fall at cornerback opposite Lafayette Pitts. In his absence, junior Trenton Coles will likely start.
Howard will be able to practice and participate in team activities but cannot play in any games this season.
This will mark the second year in a row Chryst has handed down a season-long suspension for disciplinary reasons. Defensive tackle Khaynin Mosley-Smith and receiver Ronald Jones missed all of last year.
