Bryce Brown no longer a Volunteer

If you had the under in the “Will Bryce Brown last two seasons in Knoxville?” pool, step up and collect your winnings.

According to, the much-hyped Tennessee running back is no longer a member of the football program.

New head coach Derek Dooley stated that Brown was not dismissed from the program, but rather left due to personal issues.

While it’s uncertain just where Brown will continue his collegiate career, a good bet would be on Kansas State.

Brown’s brother Arthur Brown transferred from Miami of Florida to the Wildcats earlier this month.  There were rumors at the time that Brown, depending on how his relationship with Dooley developed, would join his linebacker brother.

The path to Manhattan is now wide open, and it would be more than a little surprising if, at some point in the coming weeks, we didn’t post a headline that read something along the lines of “For Bryce, there’s no place like home”.

UPDATE: 8:07 p.m. ET: ESPN‘s Bruce Feldman, in a pair of (nice) tweets, said that Bryce Brown returning to the Volunteers isn’t out of the question, but the signs point to the back joining his brother at Kansas State.

Here are Feldman’s (nice) tweets on this developing situation:

I was just told by a source at Tennessee that Bryce Brown’s not gone for good yet. We’ll see.

“‘Major long shot’ that Bryce Brown returns to Tennessee, a UT source says. Expectations are that Brown joins his brother at K-State.

So, stay tuned.  Looks like we’ll have competing three-rings to tide us over for a couple of weeks — Cirque de Seantrel and Bumbling Bros. and Bryce & Arthur Circus

    Yes, Bryce Brown is a tremendous athlete, but Tauren Poole, who played behind him, or should I say, didn’t play, is the better and stronger running back. Dooley already knows that, dud, look at the film. And don’t forget David Oku, the No. 1 APB recruit last year, tremendous speed that can be used on the edge and flanker position.
    Of the top 4 programs, Florida, Bama, Texas, USC, Tennessee has to play 2 of them, every season. Add LSU, Georgia and Oregon, next season, Wow. We have a good chance to beat Oregon, because we get them early and our quickness and speed, on defense, will give their offense problems, in front of a 100,000 fans.
    Kiffin put excitement back into our program that was way, way to predictable, on offense. Kiffin would have put us back in the top 10 pretty quick, but come on folks, like it or not, the one job, his dream job, came open.
