Suspended Michigan Wolverines punter Will Hagerup apologized for his actions that led to his suspension from the Outback Bowl.
Michigan Wolverines junior punter Will Hagerup apologized for the actions that led to his suspension from the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1. Hagerup, cornerback J.T. Floyd and linebacker Brandin Hawthorne were all suspended for a violation of team rules. Floyd issued an apology on Monday.
Hagerup, who was suspended for the first four games of 2011 and for the Ohio State game in 2010 for violating team rules, said this suspension is "probably the greatest disappointment of my life." Hagerup went on to say that he had made good progress with personal issues this year, but lapsed into some of his old habits. "My progress wasn't complete. I let my team down, I let my coaches down, I let my family down," he said.
Hagerup said he also wrote a letter to his teammates and that he will be Michigan's biggest fan on Jan. 1 when they take on South Carolina in the Outback Bowl. Hagerup was named the Big Ten's punter of the year this season.
