The Virginia Tech Athletics Department announced today that student-athlete Marcus Vick has been suspended indefinitely from athletic competition.

The suspension is related to an out-of-town incident that occurred last week. This action is separate and apart from an earlier three-game suspension announced today.

Head football coach Frank Beamer has also suspended Vick from participation in all team activities.

Virginia Tech's Comprehensive Action Plan governs the conduct of its student-athletes. For information concerning the Action Plan go to
