UAB dismisses wide receiver Jackie Williams

Jackie Williams is no longer on the UAB football team.

Coach Garrick McGee announced that he was forced to dismiss the receiver for undisclosed reasons.

"Jackie is a good kid and a good player, but what's best for our football program is that we part ways," McGee said in a statement.

Williams was the Blazers top returning receiver. He caught 52 passes for 799 yards last season. He's fourth in school history with 140 career receptions and 1,733 yards.

Running back Darrin Reaves (41) and Kennard Backman (23) are now the leading returning receivers.
