KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee coach Derek Dooley has dismissed sophomore tight end Cameron Clear from the team following his arrest on a theft charge.

Dooley suspended Clear indefinitely Wednesday to collect information on the tight end's arrest Tuesday on a charge of theft between $1,000 and $10,000. Dooley announced Clear's dismissal Friday.

The coach said in a statement it hurts anytime a player is dismissed but there's times when a player does something that ends his privilege of being part of the team.

The 6-foot-6, 283-pound Clear from Memphis had one catch for four yards as a freshman, playing in 12 games.

Clear was arrested Tuesday after a campus police officer found him using a stolen laptop in front of Neyland Stadium.
