Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois has been dismissed from the team, coach Willie Taggart announced Sunday. Francois, a Redshirt Junior, was set to embark on his Senior season with the Noles this fall. In a statement made by head coach Willie Taggert Saturday night, Taggert stated, “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.”

Francois is being released from the school due to a video that was surfaced this weekend, showing the QB allegedly, threaten to assault his then, pregnant girlfriend as well as striking her in the face which was shown off camera. Francois was involved in a domestic dispute with his pregnant girlfriend in January 2018, but no arrests were made, nor charges filed in the incident. Tallahassee Police said Francois and the woman gave varying accounts of the incident to officers, who said they could not establish probable cause for charges. The state attorney also declined to file charges. – ESPN

As a Redshirt Freshman in 2016, Francois led the Noles to a 10-3 record that was highlighted by a Orange Bowl victory against the Michigan Wolverines. Francois would then go on to sit out for most of the 2017 season due to a serious knee injury. During the 2018 season, Francois made his return back to the gridiron, throwing for 2700 passing yards to go along with 15 TD passes.

Some say that Francois has the talents to be playing on Sunday’s in the near future. With that being said, this could very well be, a carrer ending mistake and there is no telling what is in this young mans future, or what is next on his lives journey
