Last Thursday, Auburn receiver and punt returner Quan Bray was arrested for a violation of his driving permit and cited for loud music and possession of an open container of alcohol. As a result, he’s now been suspended for this weekend’s game against Arkansas at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Last year, Bray’s father admitted to killing his mother, which Gene Chizik referenced while announcing the suspension:
“I’m proud of the way in the last year and a half that he’s carried himself, and the way he’s overcome a lot of adversity. Unfortunately, he made a bad decision this weekend. What comes with that is consequences…
Part of our job as coaches is to help young guys grow up. That’s part of my job, and, again, in a perfect world you don’t want any of these things to happen. But my job — as well as winning football games — is to help young guys come in here as boys at 18 and great into men when they leave at 22. That’s what our goal is with any guy who may make a decision that’s not what you want.”
Bray — a sophomore — was was driving on a suspended license that was only to be used to drive to work, to school or to his doctor. Instead, he was visiting friends at the University of West Georgia when he was stopped.
According to The Opelika-Auburn News, Trovon Reed will get the first opportunity to fill in for Bray, who has 11 catches on the year. Only Emory Blake and Philip Lutzenkirchen have more for the Tigers. He has also returned four punts for 23 yards through four games.
