Ex-Vol Admits Failed Drug Tests Got Him Booted

Posted: Updated:
COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -

Tennessee Tech wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers says failed drug tests caused his recent departure from Tennessee.

Rogers said Tuesday at during a press conference at his new school it was "a couple of drug tests, yes sir." He says it was him "being a young, immature guy. Those are things that I've got to work on and I plan to work on."
 
Rogers was suspended indefinitely by Tennessee on Thursday for an unspecified violation of team rules. His transfer to Tennessee Tech was announced four days later. Because Tennessee Tech is a Football Championship Subdivision program, Rogers can play for his new team immediately rather than sitting out a season.
 
Rogers caught 67 passes for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns to earn all-Southeastern Conference honors for Tennessee last season.
