Into its first off week of the season West Virginia continues to lose depth in its secondary. On Tuesday during his weekly media address Head Coach Dana Holgorsen announced that senior cornerback Travis Bell ‘retired’ from the team and that sophomore cornerback Daryl Worley currently remains ‘indefinitely’ suspended.
Bell played in 42 career games, had 56 tackles and an interception in his career. He began the 2014 season as WVU’s backup corner to Terrell Chestnut and even played at nickel corner during the opener against Alabama.
“Travis (Bell) is simply retired, so we wish him well,” said Holgorsen.
Worley was suspended ‘indefinitely’ a week ago. A few days later Worley was charged with battery after allegedly putting his hands around the neck of a woman inside a nightclub. He turned himself into police and was released on a $10,000 bond, but didn’t play in Saturday’s game against Oklahoma. West Virginia will continue to gather facts about the situation before making a decision about Worley.
