LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA linebacker Patrick Larimore is giving up football because of concussions.

Larimore suffered a concussion last week during preseason practice. He also had a concussion during spring practice.

UCLA coach Jim Mora says Larimore consulted doctors and then informed coaches he was taking a medical retirement.

Larimore, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound senior, led the team in tackles last season.
