Dalton, Georgia’s Stephaun Raines won’t be with the Vols when they head to Nashville to take on North Carolina in the December 30th Music City Bowl.

Head coach Derek Dooley announced Wednesday that Raines has been dismissed for “team rule violations.”

Raines, a junior, was a backup defensive back who didn’t play much this season.  He did see action in all 12 of the Vols games in 2009, finishing that season with 10 tackles.

Raines signed with the Vols in 2006, but didn’t qualify academically. He spent a year at home in Dalton, trying to improve his college entrance exam test score then enrolled at Coffeyville, Kansas Community College, got academically eligible and re-signed with the Vols.


The Vols will head into the first official practice of bowl season with two other players missing from their secondary.

Safety Janzen Jackson has returned to his home in Louisiana to deal with what coach Dooley called some “very, very personal and family issues.”  Dooley said he doesn’t know when Jackson will be back, but does expect him to rejoin the team in time for the bowl game.

Former starting cornerback Art Evans missed the last four games of the season with a suspension tied to late car payments.  Dooley says he’ll deal with Evans’ situation after the bowl game.
