Derek Dooley Denies Bryce Brown Release

((HT: WVLT-TV Knoxville))

Bryce Brown thinks he's going to Kansas State, but as of right now, Vols head coach Derek Dooley is not giving Brown his release from his scholarship at Tennessee.

Derek Dooley told GoVolsXtra's Austin Ward that he's not going to grant Brown a release.

Remember, Brown left Knoxville without asking for a release and sent Dooley a text message informing him of what his current intentions are. There is, according to Ward, a meeting scheduled between the two early next week to settle the issue once and for all...

"As with the other players who have asked for a release, I went through the same process with the same criteria with Bryce," Dooley said in the article. "These are the three key factors - what their personal investment into the program was, did they have their heart into it and did they give it a good, fair shot. No. 2, the harm that their departure creates for the organization. No. 3, how they handle it as a professional."

Brown will have to pay his way through school this year. He can still jump to K-State, but he can't be placed on scholarship as he gets his year to sit out at the same time.

Here was the last discussion of Brown that Dooley had late last week...
