Redshirt senior cornerback Tim Hough is no longer with the Arizona Wildcats, head coach Kevin Sumlin told reporters after Saturday’s 31-30 loss to UCLA.
Sumlin did not provide a reason for Hough’s departure. He did not travel with the team to Pasadena.

The UNLV graduate transfer joined the program near the start of fall camp and started in six games before his exit, logging 23 tackles and three pass breakups.
The Wildcats were also without Lorenzo Burns and Jace Whittaker on Saturday as their depth at cornerback continues to wane. True freshman McKenzie Barnes made his first career start alongside fellow freshman Christian Young.
The Wildcats surrendered 307 passing yards in the loss, the second-most they have allowed all season.
Arizona hosts the Oregon Ducks and prized quarterback Justin Herbert next weekend, who will certainly challenge UA’s shorthanded secondary.
