KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jay Graham is leaving Tennessee's football staff.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced on Twitter Monday that Graham "has informed us of his decision to accept a position at another institution." The running backs coach had been the lone holdover from former Tennessee coach Derek Dooley's staff.

Graham has been hired by Florida State as an offensive assistant.

Graham rushed for 2,609 yards at Tennessee from 1993-96. He ran for at least 100 yards in 11 games in 1995, setting a school record for 100-yard performances in a single season.

In his lone season as Tennessee's running backs coach, the Volunteers averaged 160.3 rushing yards per game and 4.7 yards per carry after gaining 90.1 rushing yards per game and 2.8 yards per carry the year before his arrival. He worked as an assistant at South Carolina from 2009-11.
