    Tennessee defensive linemen Dimarya Mixon and Charles Mosley are no longer with the program, leaving the Volunteers with even less depth at that position.


    Spring practice starts in a couple of weeks for Tennessee, as Butch Jones and the Volunteers try to put last year in the past and focus on becoming contenders in the SEC East again.

    The Volunteers will begin said spring practice without two defensive linemen in Dimarya Mixon and Charles Mosley, who are both no longer part of the program.

    Mixon, a junior, saw action in 37 games over three seasons, recording 19 total tackles with one sack and 2.5 tackles for a loss, while Mosley, a redshirt sophomore, played in 16 career games, producing no stats.

    Mosely started his Tennessee career on the offensive side of the ball as a left guard, missing the 2014 season due to a broken leg and then serving as a backup in 2016.

    The reasoning for their departures was not disclosed, but it could be seen as another unwanted hiccup for Jones after a year where very little went right for the Volunteers. High player and coach turnover, including replacing long-time starting quarterback Joshua Dobbs and promoting Larry Scott to offensive coordinator to replace Mike DeBord, who left for Indiana, are just a few of the problems facing the Volunteers this spring.

    The defense also took some hits before the departure of Mixon and Mosley, with stud defensive end Derek Barnett and linebacker Jalen Reeves-Maybin leaving for the NFL.
