Florida veteran linebacker Brenton Cox Jr. has been dismissed from the team, a source told ESPN.

A redshirt junior, Cox leads the team with eight tackles for loss. In eight games, he has 35 tackles, two sacks and nine quarterback hurries.

On3 was first to report that Cox is no longer on the team.

Cox began his career at Georgia before transferring to Florida under former coach Dan Mullen prior to the 2019 season.

Mullen was fired last November and replaced by Billy Napier, who is off to a 4-4 start this season.

Florida lost to No. 1 Georgia, 42-20, last Saturday in Jacksonville. Cox had two tackles in the game.

The Gators play at Texas A&M on Saturday.
