In a season already riddled with stumbling blocks, the Yellow Jackets hit another setback this week with even more NCAA violations leading to suspensions.
Georgia Tech (2-1) already had a pair of key players suspended after it was discovered that Josh Okogie and Tadric Jackson had accepted benefits not permissible by the NCAA. Now an assistant coach and yet another player were suspended Wednesday afternoon, according to an ESPN report.
Assistant coach Darryl LaBarrie was placed on paid administrative leave for violations that allegedly occurred while a highly touted recruit visited campus. Apparently the recruit in question did not ultimately choose to commit to Georgia Tech.
Additionally, guard Justin Moore has been suspended for a pair of games due to NCAA violations.
Tech is already in the midst of a six-game suspension for sophomore guard Josh Okogie, and a three-game suspension for Tadric Jackson, but has managed to remain competitive with a pair of wins.
Tadric Jackson will be back for Georgia Tech’s game against North Texas, while Okogie is set to return for Tech’s game with Tennessee.
The specifics of the latest round of suspension for Josh Pastner’s program have not yet been made public.
Georgia Tech will play North Texas at home on Friday, November 24 at 4 p.m. ET.
