KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee has dismissed wide receiver Jauan Jennings from the team after he ripped the Volunteers' coaching staff in a profanity-laced video posted on Instagram.
Vols interim head coach Brady Hoke said in a statement he made the decision "in consultation with" athletic director John Currie. Hoke added that "representing the University of Tennessee football program is a privilege."
"It was a little bit of a surprise I think to everybody, me included," Hoke said Wednesday night on his "Vol Calls" radio show. "But after talking to John Currie and consulting with him, I know what the right thing to do is for our football team. That's why we made that decision."
