Dooley on Brent Brewer

Below is the statement from Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley regarding safety Brent Brewer, who saw an argument with his girlfriend escalate into a charge of domestic assault:

"Without knowing all of the facts, any domestic incident warrants a suspension from all team-related activities until a thorough investigation is concluded. We respect everyone's right to the legal process but also acknowledge a greater standard of conduct associated with the privilege of being a member of the Tennessee football team."

A former pro baseball player, Brent Brewer started the last six games of the 2010 season at strong safety for the Vols. He was credited with 30 stops, a tackle for loss, 3 pass breakups, 1 hurry and 1 fumble recovery.
