Kiffin: Morley no longer a Vol
Safety Demetrice Morley is no longer on the Tennessee football team, UT head coach Lane Kiffin announced at practice on Tuesday.
“Demetrice won’t be part of our team anymore,” Kiffin said after the 2 1/2-hour workout. “Like we have said from the beginning, this isn’t easy. It’s very demanding for guys to stay here and go through everything we do, to hold to our standards on and off the field, to be part of our culture. Demetrice could not do that and we wish him the best of luck.”
The senior from Miami, who was not at Tuesday's practice, had already missed three practices this spring.
He was suspended for the Vols’ first spring practice after being late to a team meeting. He also missed practice last Tuesday for the birth of his child.
UT coach Lane Kiffin declined to provide specifics of Morley’s absence Saturday, saying he wanted to speak with Morley before talking with the media.
More details late online and in Wednesday’s News Sentinel.
