Al Golden said it’s time Seantrel Henderson takes responsibility for his actions.
Henderson, the Hurricanes’ enigmatic right tackle, was suspended for Saturday’s win over Georgia Tech. It was at least the third time in Henderson’s four seasons he has been suspended by UM for a violation of team rules.
Asked about Henderson’s status on Sunday, Golden said the 6-foot-8, 330-pound senior needed to face the music.
“Here’s what I’ll say: Seantrel’s a grown man,” Golden said. “He’s not a freshman or sophomore. He doesn’t need protection from a coach or an athletic director. I’m going to let Seantrel speak for Seantrel.
“I’m not going to answer these questions for Seantrel anymore. He needs to address it the next time we’re available to the media.”
Miami is on a bye this week; media availability is not scheduled until next Sunday.
“I’m going to let you guys ask him the questions and let him address that,” Golden said. “I think it’s important that he stands up and takes responsibility. I’ll let him communicate to you guys.”
Golden said Henderson is back with the team. It sounds like he will be available for Miami’s Oct. 17 game at North Carolina.
“As it relates to Seantrel, I’ll let him answer your guys’ questions,” Golden said. “As it relates to our team, he’ll be back in there with us and moving forward.”
