Former Tennessee quarterback Quinten Dormady is involved in one of the more peculiar stories in some time.

Dormady signed with the Orlando Guardians in the new XFL start up before the season before the franchise cut him earlier this week following a 0-2 start to the season. The former college journeyman was just Orlando’s backup quarterback but had earned playing time, completing 12-of-18 passes for 142 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.

But Dormady’s play on the field isn’t why Orlando cut him. Dormady allegedly sold Orlando’s plays to opponents before games according to a number of reports.

“The league is actively reviewing a personnel issue regarding a player on the Orlando Guardians who was released from the team yesterday afternoon,” the XFL said in a statement. “Additional information on the situation was brought to the attention of the League overnight, and the League has reinstated the player while it conducts a formal investigation into the situation. The situation is under review, and we will share more details regarding the findings as possible.”

This strange situation reached a resolution on March 15 when the XFL exonerated Dormady of any wrong doings.

Dormady spent three seasons at Tennessee, serving as Josh Dobbs’ backup for two seasons before earning the starting job in 2017. The Texas native struggled once he earned his chance and eventually lost the starting job to Jarrett Guarantano.

The three-star recruit completed 100-of-176 passes for seven touchdowns and six interceptions in his three years at Tennessee.

Dormady transferred to Houston after the 2017 season and struggled to find consistent playing time before transferring to Central Michigan to finish his collegiate career.
