KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee football coach Derek Dooley
says he is embarrassed by the recent arrests of some his players
and has vowed to change the culture of the Volunteer program.
But those changes can't come soon enough.
There is an ongoing police investigation of several players
involved in an off-campus bar brawl. Two players have been arrested
and a seventh has been identified as a possible suspect.
Defensive tackle Chase Nelson was named in a Knoxville police
report released Wednesday.
Sophomore defensive back Darren Myles Jr. was arrested Friday
and has been dismissed from the team. Incoming freshman wide
receiver Da'Rick Rogers was arrested, but Dooley has taken no
disciplinary actions against him yet.
