Charlottesville, VA (Sports Network) - University of Virginia head football
coach Mike London announced on Friday that quarterback Phillip Sims is
ineligible and will no longer be enrolled at the school.
Sims recently completed his sophomore season in 2012 after he transferred from
Alabama earlier last summer. This past fall, Sims played in all 12 games for
the Cavaliers, including four starts, completing 132-of-231 passes for 1,426
yards and nine touchdowns.
Virginia finished with a 4-8 record in 2012, including a 2-6 mark in ACC play.
"Phillip Sims did not make the commitment he needed to succeed here," London
said. "I appreciate his efforts last season. He is a very talented young man
who is blessed with some extraordinary athletic abilities."
