UGA & LB Brenton Cox reach 'mutual decision' to part ways

Sources confirm to FOX 5 Sports contributor Rusty Mansell that the University of Georgia football team has reached a 'mutual decision' to part ways with outside linebacker Brenton Cox. Sources also confirm that Cox is now in the NCAA Transfer Portal.

Cox, from Stockbridge, was heading into his sophomore season with the Bulldogs. As a freshman in 2018 he played in 13 of 14 games and finished the season with 20 total tackles and one sack.
