FSU dismisses QB Deondre Francois from football team after domestic violence allegation

Tallahassee Democrat

Florida State redshirt senior quarterback Deondre Francois has been dismissed from the FSU football team, coach Willie Taggart announced Sunday. 

"Last night, I informed Deondre Francois that he is no longer a member of the Florida State football program," Taggart said in a statement released by the University.

"As we build a new culture and foundation for FSU Football, we have high expectations for all of our student-athletes and we will not shy away from those high standards of conduct. We are moving forward as a program."

The girlfriend of Francois posted a 24-second video to Instagram Saturday alleging that Francois has abused her. The exchange was filled with obscenities and the sounds of slapping.
