Derek Dooley Volunteers A Bunch Of Changes

Vols head coach Derek Dooley announced that by "mutual agreement," defensive line coach Chuck Smith will not return to his position for the 2011 season and will pursue other career opportunities.

“I am grateful for the personal investment, hard work, and passion that Chuck contributed to our program this past year,” said Dooley. “He is a dear friend to me, and more importantly, will always be a part of the Tennessee family.”

Then, a lot of roster moves are on the horizon...

Sophomore safety Janzen Jackson has voluntarily withdrawn from the 2011 spring semester for personal reasons.

“We are continuing to support Janzen as he addresses his personal issues during this temporary withdrawal from school,” Dooley said in a release. “While he would still be eligible to compete if he enrolls this fall, nothing is more important than Janzen’s personal well-being.”

Also, freshman defensive back Ted Meline has permanently withdrawn from school for personal reasons. Linebacker Jerod Askew has been dismissed for a violation of team rules. Junior defensive back Art Evans has been reinstated, and junior center Cody Pope will no longer participate in football for medical reasons.

Here's how the HQ tends to remember Chuck Smith...
