TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) â€” Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher has dismissed junior wide receiver Jarmon Fortson for an undisclosed policy violation.
Florida State announced the dismissal Sunday shortly after the Seminoles' annual media day. Fisher did not mention Fortson's departure during media day interviews.
Fortson, of Hurtsboro, Ala., was one of Florida State's top returning receivers. He started six games last year, catching 45 passes for a career high 610 yards and four touchdowns.
In a statement, Fisher said he wished Fortson well. He said the team would miss Fortson but had to move on.
Fisher called an impromptu team meeting Sunday to notify the other players.
