Vols dismiss Cameron Clear from team

5/25/2012

Tennessee coach Derek Dooley announced Friday that sophomore tight end Cameron Clear had been dismissed from the team.

Clear was arrested this week and charged with theft of a laptop from a Tennessee baseball player.

"It hurts anytime a player is dismissed from the program, but there comes a time when a player's actions dictate that his privilege of being a part of this team should be removed," Dooley said in a release. "We will continue to support Cam and his family to help him learn from his actions and become the person and player I believe he has the potential to be.”

Clear was expected to play a much larger role in the Vols' offense this season after catching just one pass as a freshman.
