Why the suspension was extended isn't known, although Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel muses that the timing of the announcement is intriguing:

On the field and without last year's Heisman winner, the No. 1 Seminoles will turn to sophomore quarterback Sean Maguire, who has attempted just 26 career passes.
