Pitt safety Damar Hamlin was ejected from the Panthers’ game on Thursday night against the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Hamlin was flagged for targeting near the end of the first half while diving to make a play on a ball thrown to North Carolina wide receiver Dazz Newsome.
By rule, Hamlin was ejected for the game, but because the play happened in the first half of the game, he will not be suspended for Pitt’s next game.
Hamlin was leading Pitt with five solo tackles before being ejected. He was replaced by redshirt senior Jazzee Stocker. The Panthers led North Carolina, 17-10 at halftime.
