Florida State dismisses QB Deondre Francois from team

GF of QB Deondre Francois Posts Video of Verbal, Physical Assault That Lead To Florida State Dismissal (VIDEO)

"You are a coward and this isn't right".

"I don't give a (expletive)..." the man responded. "I'm going to hit you in your face every f-king time".

"Last night, I informed Deondre Francois that he is no longer a member of the Florida State football program", FSU head coach Willie Taggart said in a statement released by the university Sunday. Just because you are who you are that doesn't give you the right to put your hands on a woman ever!'

The post tagged Francois' Instagram account, which has since been deleted.

Francois has been previously accused of domestic violence.

Because of conflicting statements, no arrest was made or charges brought.

Florida State's starting quarterback is no longer with the program.

The layoffs were first announced in November, along with plans to close four plants - two in MI , one in OH , and one in Ontario. The automaker expects the moves to help save up to $2.5 billion in costs this year and a total of $6 billion by 2020.


Francois, who called the police, said the woman started the argument and was destroying things in the home.

Whether we as FSU football fans want to accept it or not, the reputation about the program in the outside world is that they tolerate behavior like this toward women. Due to the absence of independent witnesses, the case was dismissed.

Francois reportedly sought a draft grade from the NFL before announcing his return to Florida State following the 2018 college football season. Francois emerged as the team's starting quarterback in 2016, but missed nearly all of the 2017 season due to a knee injury.

Deondre Francois' time at Florida State has come to an end.

His next season was cut short in the season opener against Alabama after suffering a season-ending knee injury.

He struggled in 2018 as he got used to Taggart's offense and was expected to compete in the upcoming season with junior James Blackman, who replaced Francois in 2017. He went 5-6 as a starter in his first year starting for Taggart, passing for 2,731 yards and 15 touchdowns to 12 interceptions while completing 96 of 227 passes (57.3 percent).
