MT. PLEASANT, MICH. ⁠— Central Michigan University announced this week starting quarterback David Moore has been suspended by the NCAA for one year after testing positive for a banned substance.

First reported by the Detroit News, CMU said Moore tested positive for a banned substance contained in an over-the-counter supplement.

The university intends to appeal Moore’s suspension, which would cost him a year of athletic eligibility if upheld by the NCAA.

Moore is ineligible to play during the appeal process. The Garden City CC (Kan.) transfer has completed 57.3 percent of his passes while throwing for 1,143 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions in six games this season.

CMU’s week one starting quarterback, Quinten Dormady, returned to practice last week after an injury and reportedly will resume as the team’s starter. Dormady threw for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the season opener.

Bowling Green and Toledo have not played against Central Michigan, but they have the Chippewas on their schedules. The Falcons host CMU on Oct. 19, and the Rockets visit Mt. Pleasant on Nov. 29 in the final game of the regular season.
