Tennessee dismisses Jennings over profanity-laced video

Our sister station WVLT in Knoxville is reporting that Jauan Jennings has been dismissed from the Volunteer football program, confirmed by UT officials Wednesday night. Vols WR Jauan Jennings, the recipient of the Hail Mary pass to beat beat Georgia a year ago, has been dismissed from the team by interim coach Brady Hoke.

In a video posted on the social media website, Jennings used several profanities and a racial slur repeatedly to express his displeasure with Tennessee's coaching staff.

Tennessee announced Wednesday evening that wide receiver Jauan Jennings would be dismissed from the program.

"It ain't nothing to do with no players", Jennings said.

"Please, Tennessee, send us a great coaching staff", Jennings said in part of the video.

Jennings' displeasure apparently stemmed from the fact that he was not cleared to play in Saturday's game against Vanderbilt. "It's straight (expletive) coaching".

Unfortunately for Jennings, his 2017 campaign ended in the season opener due to a wrist injury against Georgia Tech.

Jennings, a junior, entered the season as Tennessee's leading returning receiver. He reeled in 40 passes for 580 yards and seven touchdowns, and each of those numbers ranked second on the team and earned preseason honors as a result.
