Georgia coach dismisses 2 football players

ATHENS, Ga. | Coach Mark Richt says he has dismissed two football players from 10th-ranked Georgia's team — Donavon Baldwin, a junior safety, and Walter Hill, a redshirt freshman wide receiver.

Richt said Baldwin's departure was a mutual agreement between the two after a meeting to discuss Baldwin's situation and Hill was kicked off because "he didn't live up to the standards of doing things the Georgia way."

Baldwin was injured in a barroom brawl two days before fall practice began and had been convicted of driving under the influence in January.

Hill, who chose football over basketball at Georgia, broke his hand early in the preseason and recently injured a foot.
