Tennessee running back Tim Jordan was dismissed from the team following his arrest last month on gun and marijuana charges in Florida.

"Tim is no longer on our team," Volunteers coach Jeremy Pruitt told reporters on Thursday.

A rising senior from Bartow, Fla., Jordan was arrested after an early-morning traffic stop on May 30 in Lakeland. He was charged with carrying a concealed firearm, possessing 20 grams or less of cannabis and possessing drug paraphernalia. The weapons charge is a third-degree felony in Florida.

Jordan appeared in 12 games with four starts last season, rushing for 428 yards and one touchdown and adding six receptions for 46 yards.

In three seasons with the Volunteers, Jordan rushed for 1,002 yards and four touchdowns and added 26 catches for 227 yards.
