USF coach Skip Holtz said Monday that sophomore running back Marcus Shaw and redshirt freshman cornerback Spencer Boyd have been suspended from the team.

Holtz said the suspension was for “in-house things” but didn’t elaborate. He said both players missed the Miami game because of the suspension and that both will miss Friday’s game against Louisville as well. He said it has yet to be determined whether or not the two will be reinstated before the regular-season finale against West Virginia on Dec. 1.

Shaw, who is the No. 3 running back for the Bulls, also missed time away from the team in 2010 because of academic reasons. He appeared in the first nine games this season, totaling 18 carries for 38 yards and two touchdowns while also playing a significant role on special teams.

Boyd appeared in six games this season, playing mostly on special teams.
