Tennessee's football team lost another player, the second this week and the seventh from last year's team who won’t return under first-year coach Lane Kiffin.
Donald Langley, who had played defensive tackle and offensive guard at UT, is no longer with the team.
“He left,” Kiffin said after practice on Friday.
Langley, who is from Germantown, Md., played in only two games last season after redshirting as a freshman in 2007.
Langley joins safety Demetrice Morley, tailback Lennon Creer, receiver E.J. Abrams-Ward and offensive linemen Preston Bailey, Ramone Johnson and Darius Myers as players from last season who either left the program or were dismissed.
Langley was thought to be a player who could add depth to UT’s defensive front, but was moved to the offensive line midway through spring practice. That experiment evidently didn’t work.
“He’s not with us,” Kiffin said. “He’s not part of our program anymore. “Same old story.”
Langley is expected to stay in school for the remainder of the spring semester.
