Wolf Pack's Stanley declared academically ineligible

HONOLULU -- Nevada cornerback and football co-captain Kevin
Stanley won't be playing in Saturday's Hawaii Bowl after being
declared academically ineligible.
"We found out this morning, and he is on his way back to
Reno," coach Chris Ault told the Reno Gazette-Journal after the
team worked out at Aloha Stadium for two hours on Thursday.
"When we left on the weekend, I thought everyone was in good
shape. I wasn't worried about it. I didn't expect anything like
Freshman De'Angelo Wilson will get the start at cornerback when
the Wolf Pack plays Central Florida, but Ault said Wilson was
slated to start in place of Stanley before the academic problem
came up.
"De'Angelo was going to start because he had been the better
player," Ault said. "It is not a blow for the team."
But Ault said he had wanted Stanley to be part of the game
because he helped start the foundation that got Nevada a bowl bid.
"He should have helped finish it, but he didn't find a way to
get it done," Ault said
Stanley was one of four senior captains on the team, which went
8-3 and won a share of the Western Athletic Conference championship
this season.
He was fifth on the team with 45 tackles. He had one
interception and lead the team with 15 passes defended.
