KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Three Tennessee football players caught with marijuana in their car during a traffic stop will have to perform community service and face more frequent drug testing as part of the discipline coach Phillip Fulmer handed down Monday.
Wide receivers Gerald Jones and Ahmad Paige were cited Friday for misdemeanor drug possession. No charges were made against backseat passengers, defensive tackle William Brimfield and visiting recruit Jameel Owens from Oklahoma.
But Fulmer decided after meeting with them Monday to discipline all three 18-year-olds.
``They understand that this behavior will not be tolerated,'' Fulmer said. ``They have a number of things they need to do to get back in our good graces, including performing community service with a drug rehabilitation facility, participating in police ride-alongs and more frequent drug tests.''
They also will be prohibited from hosting recruits for one year.
