There won’t be another chance for Tyren Jones.
The suspended Alabama running back was dismissed from the program Tuesday just hours after being arrested on marijuana possession charges.
“Tyren Jones was indefinitely suspended from the football program early in the semester,” Nick Saban said Tuesday. “He was given an opportunity academically and from a team rules standpoint, but he failed to do any of the things necessary to comply with the rules of the Alabama football program. He was dismissed from the team when he refused to follow the parameters given to him for reinstatement.”
Jones is the second player to be kicked off the team following an arrest in three days. Defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor was dismissed from the team Sunday after his Saturday domestic violence arrest.
Jones has not appeared in spring practice after being suspended indefinitely on Feb. 10.
He was arrested late Tuesday morning for second degree marijuana possession. A small amount of marijuana was found in Jones’ pocket after being in a car stopped by Tuscaloosa police.
