After video surfaced this morning of his alleged domestic abuse, Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois has been dismissed from the football team, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.

Francois has been the starting quarterback at Florida State two out of the past three seasons, sandwiched around a 2017 campaign which saw him miss almost the entire year with an injury.

Last season, he threw for 2,731 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions. He was expected to be the starting quarterback entering the season.

"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," Florida State head coach Willie Taggart said. "We are moving forward as a program."
