UF’s Jenkins On Muschamp: “He Washed His Hands Of Me”

On Tuesday, Will Muschamp announced via Twitter that star cornerback Janoris Jenkins had been dismissed from the Florida program following his third arrest overall and his second — for marijuana possession — while under Muschamp’s watch.

Muschamp’s tweet:


After meeting with Janoris Jenkins today, we both felt it was in his best interest to move ahead to the next stage of his career.


But that’s not exactly the way Jenkins told the story to The Orlando Sentinel yesterday.

“The only thing he said was I was dismissed as soon as I walked in the room,” Jenkins said.  “He washed his hands of me.”

“They know (Muschamp) didn’t give me no option to make. … There was nothing else I could have done or said.”

The paper then turned to a UF spokesperson for comment, but he said he could not elaborate on the meeting between Muschamp and Jenkins.  “We stand by the statements that we made yesterday regarding the matter.”

Jenkins’ attorney says that his client will fight the most recent charge of marijuana possession stemming from an arrest in Gainesville on Saturday. 

A mentor of Jenkins — that’s The Sentinel’s word — added, “We’re going to wait on the court to show that he didn’t do anything wrong and he should have never been dismissed from nowhere.”

Here’s the rub for Jenkins: No one is going to feel too sorry for a player who has been arrested three times during his college career.  A roster spot on a football team is earned.  Therefore a roster spot can also be lost.

While we’re not fans of coaches running off players for simply failing to develop as the coaches had projected, we don’t have much trouble with a coach pulling the plug on someone who repeatedly puts himself in bad situations and who consistently creates bad publicity for his team and his school.

And remember, it’s entirely possible that Muschamp gave Jenkins a “don’t come back into my office in trouble again” speech the last time he was arrested.

Indeed, had Jenkins not been arrested two times previously, it’s doubtful his latest run-in with the law would have resulted in his exit from the Gator program.

Muschamp might have washed his hands of Jenkins, but Jenkins is the man who gave his coach the soap and water.
