The Florida Gators have parted ways with linebacker Brenton Cox, Jr., head coach Billy Napier confirmed Monday. Zach Abolverdi of GatorsOnline was the first to report the story.

While Napier didn’t state the reasoning, he did mention it was, “an accumulation of things, rather than one specific action.”
Cox was a five-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting cycle and initially signed with Goegia before transferring to Florida prior to the 2020 season.
Cox leaves Florida with 35 tackles, eight for loss and two sacks. He played a major role in Florida’s upset of then No. 7 Utah, where he tallied ten tackles.
The Gators travel to College Station, Texas to take on a disappointing A&M team Saturday . The game is scheduled for a noon (ET) kickoff.
