CHAPEL HILL — North Carolina tight end and linebacker Jack Tabb will be suspended for the first half of the Tar Heels’ game against Miami on Oct. 17.
Tabb was ejected late in the fourth quarter of UNC’s 27-17 loss at Virginia Tech on Saturday. Tabb was called for a personal foul and Larry Fedora, UNC’s second year coach, said he had been told that Tabb threw a punch.
The ACC reviewed the play and decided on Tabb’s one-half suspension. Tabb earlier this season served a two-game suspension for violation of team rules and sat out the Tar Heels’ losses against Georgia Tech and ECU.
