Junior cornerback Tay Cody was suspended yesterday by Florida State Coach Bobby Bowden following his arrest for possession of marijuana.

Bowden said Cody, who was arrested Tuesday, would miss Saturday's game against Virginia.

"I'm suspending him for the next game and maybe more, until the facts are in," Bowden said Wednesday.

Cody, of Blakely, Ga., was taken into custody near Colquitt, Ga., by troopers from the Georgia Department of Public Safety after a routine traffic stop led police to discover four bags of marijuana in the car he was driving, department spokesman Gordy Wright said.

Troopers noted that the car Cody was driving along U.S. Highway 27 was not registered in the player's name. After stopping Cody, the troopers saw a small bag of marijuana on the driver's side floorboard, Wright said.

Troopers arrested Cody, and while searching him, discovered three more bags of marijuana. Wright said the amount of marijuana found was less than an ounce, a misdemeanor in Georgia.

Cody, a third-year starter for the top-ranked Seminoles, has two interceptions this season and six for his career. . . .

Florida State assistant coach Jim Gladden won't be on the sidelines Saturday for the first time in 25 years. The defensive ends coach broke his right leg during practice Tuesday when he was wiped out on a sweep play. Gladden underwent surgery Tuesday night and three pins were inserted in his hip. . . .

The University of Dayton men's basketball program will likely be placed on NCAA probation for loans a university trustee made to the father of a recruit, the school's athletics director said. The NCAA likely will rule that the school committed four rules infractions, including a major violation in connection with the loans, AD Ted Kissell said. However, investigators concluded that Brooks Hall is eligible to play because he did not know about the loans or directly benefit from them, Kissell said. . . .

Agassi Wins at Eurocard

Dodgers Pick Daly

The Los Angeles Dodgers today will name former Warner Bros. executive Bob Daly as chairman and chief executive officer who is purchasing a small part of the team, a source close to the team said.

The Dodgers would only say a "major executive appointment" is planned for 10 a.m. PDT at Staples Center.

Daly quit as chairman and co-chief executive of Warner Bros. in July. He will replace Bob Graziano, who was fired as president and CEO shortly before the team finished a disappointing season.
