UNC's Felder, Davidson transfer; McAdoo dismissed
Posted May 9, 2011
University of North Carolina defensive back Brendon Felder and linebacker Herman Davidson will transfer from the school, the school's athletic department said Monday.
Tar Heel football coach Butch Davis said Felder is transferring for family reasons.
"Brendon's family is going through some tough times," Davis said. "His grandmother is sick and he wanted to be closer to the family for support."
Davis said he wished "nothing but the best" for Felder and his family.
The athletic department did not state why Davidson was transferring. Davidson played a back-up role at linebacker in 13 games last season.
The two transfers weren't the only two changes to the Tar Heel roster announced on Monday. Defensive lineman Jared McAdoo was dismissed from the program for violating team rules.
As a redshirt freshman in 2010, McAdoo played in 12 games.
Also, linebacker Shane Mularkey will no longer play football, according to UNC. Mularkey underwent season-ending shoulder surgery last season after playing in the first two games of the year.
