Jones also confirmed the report from Tuesday that redshirt freshman Jarrett Guarantano will be the Vols' new starting quarterback when Tennessee hosts SC. Tennessee simply couldn't tolerate his propensity to give the ball away anymore.
With Dormady at the helm, Tennessee's offense ranks 109th nationally in total offense, averaging 333.4 yards a game.
247Sports reports that Dormady is "considering his future with the program" after being benched. Just another week of Vol football under Butch Jones.
On Monday evening, offensive coordinator Larry Scott intimated that one of the biggest keys in Guarantano's development may have come as a result of the quarterback's biggest embarrassments.

Sun Life Inc reported 0.03% stake. 211.02 million shares or 0.62% less from 212.33 million shares in 2017Q1 were reported. Meeder Asset Management Inc. boosted its position in shares of Coca-Cola Company (The) by 59.4% in the 2nd quarter.
"He obviously was disappointed", Jones said of Dormady, "but that's what you expect from a competitor".
Guarantano, who was the country's No. 1 dual-threat quarterback for the 2016 recruiting class, has completed 12 of 24 passes for 54 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. During the national telecast of Tennessee's season-opening 42-41 double-overtime victory over Georgia Tech, cameras showed Guarantano sitting on the sideline without interacting much with teammates. "I think we need to just stand behind the team", said Thomason.
"For him to have that experience, that's as real as it gets". We go through life, we have setbacks and it's how you deal with it.
