KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee has dismissed sophomore tailback LaMarcus Coker for undisclosed reasons.
Coach Phillip Fulmer had suspended Coker from one game for a violation of team rules, but said after further investigation he decided to dismiss the player.
Fulmer said Coker did not do was what asked of him and he wanted a positive environment for No. 24 Tennessee.
Coker was suspended for almost three weeks of practice in August for what team officials described as a medical issue. He was also suspended for several practices last December before the Outback Bowl for undisclosed reasons.
Coker was a kick returner and a No. 2 tailback behind Arian Foster.
