Tyler Bullock Suspended Indefinitely

Mark L. Baer-US PRESSWIRE

The Daily Campus is reporting that Bullock was arrested this morning for DUI.

Bad news out of UConn today as the New Haven Register's Jim Fuller is reporting that senior offensive lineman Tyler Bullock has been suspended indefinitely by interim head coach T.J. Weist due to a violation of team rules, and according to The Daily Campus, Bullock was arrested early this morning for DUI near the Celeron Apartment Complex just off campus.

Per the Daily Campus report, the 6-foot-4, 314 pound lineman was pulled over at 12:47 a.m. for failing to drive right. Bullock subsequently failed a series of field sobriety tests and was taken into custody. He is due in court on Oct. 15.

Bullock started eight games at center for UConn last year and was expected to be the team's starter again this year before he went down with an injury during preseason camp. Alex Mateas wound up earning the starting job instead and has retained it ever since, despite the fact that the results on the field haven't been very good.

Recently, Bullock started getting more action at right guard to help spell starter Gus Cruz and create some semblance of a spark for an offensive line that has just been a complete mess this season. While Bullock is by no means an impact player, his suspension isn't going to help things one bit.

The school administration issued a brief statement announcing the suspension:

"University of Connecticut senior center Tyler Bullock (Mechanicsburg, Pa.) has been suspended indefinitely from the team for a violation of team rules by interim head coach T.J. Weist. The University will have no further comment on this matter."

We'll have more on this as the story develops.
