The Georgia Bulldogs today dismissed safety Josh Harvey-Clemons from their football program with immediate effect.

The official reason given was for the "violation of team rules".

Harvey-Clemons was already scheduled to miss the opening three games of the 2014 season having been suspended by the Bulldogs last month.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution stated that the original suspension occurred after the player violated the school's marijuana-use policy for the second time.

It is likely these two incidents are linked, but as yet there are no further details as to why the punishment for the team's third leading tackler has escalated.

The announcement was made in a brief statement by Georgia, attributed to head coach Mark Richt.

The safety played 25 games during his Bulldogs career, starting 11.

He was a five-star recruit when entering college and was set to start his junior year.
