Muschamp turned down several questions Wednesday after saying “you handle things and move forward.”

The program banned Harris from all team activities during the investigation.

The school said a female student accused Harris of sexually assaulting her around 3 a.m. Sunday — hours after he helped Florida rally to beat Tennessee 10-9 in Knoxville.
