    Josh Heupel dismissed a pair of players from his football program this month following domestic violence arrests. Linebacker William Mohan and Savion Herring are no longer members of the Tennessee football program, a UT spokesperson told RTI Friday morning.

    The Knoxville PD arrested Mohan for domestic aggravated assault on Aug. 23 and the linebacker was immediately indefinitely suspended. Heupel removed the Michigan transfer linebacker from his program earlier this month.

    Mohan totaled nine tackles in his time at Tennessee and didn’t play in a game this season.

    Herring was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week and was quickly removed from the team. The junior college transfer didn’t spend long in the Volunteer program, arriving in Knoxville this offseason before being dismissed from the team.

    Neither Herring or Mohan were expected to make a major impact on the 2022 Tennessee football team.

    The Tennessee football team returns to the field Saturday night against Akron. Kick-off between the Vols and Zips is at 7 p.m. ET with the game streaming on the SEC Network Alternate Channel and ESPN+.
