Texas head coach Tom Herman suspended cornerback Holton Hill for the remainder of the season for a violation of team rules.

Hill, a junior from Houston, is allowed to remain on the team and practice, but will not play in games for the rest of 2017.

Hill is second on the team in tackles with 51 and returned two interceptions for touchdowns. He also returned a blocked field goal for a touchdown in the opener against Maryland. Following a disappointing 2016 season Hill did a 180 degree turn this year, becoming one of the premier cornerbacks in the Big 12.

UT did not offer any further details as to why Hill will miss the rest of the season.
