Vols dismiss Cameron Clear from team

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.
