UT Football coach Jeremy Pruitt says he will remove Jeremy Banks from the team.

He says “While I will continue to support Jeremy in the next steps in his life, information I recently received made it clear that this decision is in the best interest of the football program and the university.”

Banks was pulled over for making an illegal U-turn which lead UT Police to discover he had an outstanding warrant and a suspended license. He used inappropriate language and comments toward police.
