FSU quarterback dismissed after alleged domestic violence incident

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is no longer with the team after an alleged domestic violence incident.

The dismissal comes less than a month after the QB announced he would return for his senior season.

A video surfaced on Instagram Saturday night with audio of Francois allegedly threatening to assault his former girlfriend.

Head coach Willie Taggart issued a response this morning saying, “Last night, I informed Deondre Francois that he is no longer a member of the Florida State football program, 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."

With Francois' departure, James Blackman remains the only returning scholarship quarterback on the FSU roster for the time being.

Spring practice begins March 4th.
