Bennett will start for Bulldogs
Dooley also announced today that first-year defensive tackle Rolando Melancon would not be eligible to play this year for the Bulldogs.
“We’re disappointed that Rolando did not meet the NCAA eligibility requirements to participate this season,” Dooley said. “It is a big blow to our team and especially to our defensive line.
“Rolando has a great future ahead of him at Tech, and I hope he can learn from this and embrace the importance of his academic responsibilities. We believe in him and expect him to be a great contributor to our team in the future.”
