Former Georgia linebacker Brenton Cox was fired from Florida

Cox transferred to Florida for the 2019 season. Cox got into it with several Georgia Bulldogs after Georgia went up 42-20, appearing to throw a punch after Kenny McIntosh got into the end zone.

“It’s always good to see Brenton,” offensive lineman Warren McClendon said. “Even though he chose to leave here and go to Florida, he’s a good player and it was fun to go against him.

Georgia came away with a 42-20 win over the Gators. Cox entered the game with 2.0 sacks on the season and had a season-high 8.0 tackles for loss.

The Bulldogs rolled up 555 yards of offense against Florida on Saturday, rushing for 239 yards in the win. Quarterback Stetson Bennett was not sacked in the win. Cox had two tackles, a pass deflection and a quarterback pressure. The defensive back jumped offside on Brock Bowers’ 29-yard catch in the fourth quarter.

Cox signed with Georgia as a member of the 2018 class out of Stockbridge, Ga. Cox had started every game for Florida this season. Florida is 4-4 this season under first-year coach Billy Napier.

“It just didn’t work out,” Cox previously said. “Me and Coach Smart, we agreed [on the] mutual decision to leave and I came here. This has been the best decision I’ve made so far.”
