Virginia Tech dismissed defensive back Mook Reynolds from the program for a violation of team rules, the school announced Monday.

“Head coach Justin Fuente indicated on Monday that senior DB Mook Reynolds has been dismissed from the team effective immediately in accordance with Virginia Tech Athletics Department policies,” according to a statement from Virginia Tech.

“Reynolds had previously been suspended from all team and football-related activities during the spring semester. There will be no further comment on the matter.”

Reynolds recorded 70 tackles last season while playing both linebacker and nickel safety for the Hokies, who also saw defensive back Adonis Alexander removed from the program last month due to academic reasons.

Alexander then made himself eligible for the NFL’s supplemental draft after missing out on the 2018 NFL Draft in April.
