Michigan To Redshirt Darryl Stonum During 2011 Season

Michigan wide receiver Darryl Stonum will not play at all during the 2011 season. Head coach Brady Hoke announced in a release on Sunday that Stonum will redshirt during the 2011 season, citing the "best interest" of the program as the reason for the move.

"While it would be great to have Darryl on the field this season, we feel it is in his best interest and the best interest of our program for him to redshirt," said Hoke. "Darryl will continue to be an important part of our team and family. He has done everything we have asked him to do, but our number one priority is to help Darryl grow as a person."

Stonum was suspended indefinitely by Hoke back in May after he was arrested for second-offense drunken driving. Stonum ultimately reached a plea agreement and was sentenced to two years of probation and a suspended sentence of 365 days in jail for an operating while visibly impaired charge.

With this being Stonum's second drunken driving incident in the last three years, Hoke decided it was best to sit Stonum for the year. This means Stonum will finish his career at Michigan in 2012 as a redshirt senior.
