UAB Dismisses Leading Receiver Williams

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - UAB wide receiver Jackie Williams has been dismissed from the team.

Blazers coach Garrick McGee announced Friday that Williams, the team's leading receiver last year, was let go for "undisclosed reasons."

McGee says in a statement released by the school: "Jackie is a good kid and a good player, but what's best for our football program is that we part ways."

Williams, a senior from Prichard, Ala., had 52 receptions for 799 yards and one touchdown last season.

The Blazers open the season Aug. 31 at Troy.
