Miami suspends DT Michael Wyche indefinitely after arrest for battery

Wednesday October 28th, 2015

Miami defensive tackle Michael Wyche has been suspended indefinitely by the team after being arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery on Wednesday.

The school issued a statement that it was “aware of the situation” and announced his suspension. The Palm Beach Post reported Wyche remained in a Miami correctional center as of Wednesday afternoon on $1,500 bond, according to court records. His hearing is set for Nov. 18. USA Today reports he was also ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.

Wyche, a redshirt senior, turned 23 on Wednesday. He was a three-star recruit who spent time at three different junior colleges before transferring to Miami in May 2014.

Wyche played in Miami’s first four games this season without recording a tackle. In 10 games in 2014, he recorded nine tackles and 1/2 sacks.

Miami plays Saturday at Duke in the first game of interim head coach Larry Scott’s tenure, after Al Golden was fired on Sunday in the wake of a 58–0 loss to Clemson.

The Hurricanes are 4–3.
