SEVIERVILLE - Derek Dooley offered no news Thursday concerning two Tennessee football players who are expected to transfer.
The UT first-year coach said at the Big Orange Caravan that there have been no recent conversations with tailback Bryce Brown or quarterback Nick Lamaison.
Brown did not participate in spring practice. Dooley said he is neither optimistic nor has closed the door on an unlikely return by the sophomore-to-be.
Lamaison, who did not play in 2009 after one season at a junior college in California, could also transfer after not being at all involved in the quarterback competition during spring practice.
Lamaison, a sophomore, has not returned multiple text and phone messages from the News Sentinel.
Dooley also said he is unaware of any academic casualties from the spring semester, which ended this month.
