The West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback competition was expected to be wide open heading in to the spring, but the race will now be down to two players after the news that redshirt freshman quarterback Ford Childress has been suspended from the team.
Childress has also decided not to enroll at West Virginia for the spring semester.
From Mike Casazza of the Charleston Daily Mail:

There has been no reason given for his suspension.
With Childress now out of the mix, the West Virginia starting quarterback job will come down to either Clint Trickett or Paul Millard.
Childress finished the 2013 with 421 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. His season came to an early end in mid-October after suffering a torn pectoral muscle.
