A-State football dismisses sophomore QB James Tabary

QB James Tabary to transfer from A-State

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A-State's head football coach, Blake Anderson announced Wednesday afternoon that sophomore quarterback James Tabary has been dismissed from the team for unspecified reasons:

Due to an unfortunate situation between James and our program, which I won't discuss in detail because it is an internal team matter, we have made the decision that it is in the best interest of everyone involved to dismiss him from our team.  There were inappropriate and disappointing choices made by James, and I am hopeful he will learn from this. While we wish him the best in his future, this is an instance where we simply cannot move forward together.  We appreciate the positive contributions he made to our team during his time here, and we will do everything we can to help him as he pursues other options. - Coach Blake Anderson 4/20/16

Coach Anderson added the team considers the matter closed and will have no further comment.

Tabary had previously announced his plans to transfer via his Twitter account.
