NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Florida coach Will Muschamp has kicked defensive tackle Leon Orr off the team after he complained about not starting against Vanderbilt on Saturday night.

Muschamp said after Florida beat Vanderbilt 34-10 that Orr came to him Saturday and said he didn't understand why he wasn't starting.

"Leon hasn't started since the Alabama game," Muschamp said. "He hasn't started all week in practice, and he came to me today and didn't understand why he wasn't starting. He said he was going to go home, and that was his decision. I said, 'If you go home, you're done. You're not a Florida Gator anymore.'"

The fifth-year senior had not started since the Alabama game Sept. 20.

The 6-foot-5 Orr played in five games this season and had 16 tackles with two for loss. He made 10 starts in 38 career games.
