ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia paid an attorney more than $40,000 to represent Todd Gurley while he sought reinstatement from the NCAA after he was suspended for accepting money for autographs.

Details obtained through an open records request filed by the Athens Banner-Herald (https://bit.ly/1vYXM04) show the school paid Alabama attorney William King $43,301 for the star running back’s legal help.

UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity says the school may pay for student-athletes’ legal representation if they don’t have the money to pay the expense on their own.

Gurley received a four-game suspension for selling his autograph. He returned from suspension for Georgia’s Nov. 15 game against Auburn University and went down with a season-ending knee injury.
