Georgia Tech dismisses Jeff Greene

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia Tech and wide receiver Jeff Greene have parted ways due to Greene's poor effort and attitude.

Georgia Tech wide receiver Jeff Greene has left the football program, as the school and Greene "decided it would be best to part ways." Greene's high school coach Chad Phillips revealed the decision on Wednesday and said he is looking to get the troubled wide receiver back on the right track. Via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"We're trying to help him get re-directed and get off the mat, find a place for him to go and proceed," Phillips said.

Greene actually leads Georgia Tech in receiving this year, with 18 catches for 284 yards and two touchdowns. Coach Paul Johnson had high hopes for the wide receiver, but the coaching staff soon soured on Greene's poor effort and attitude. That frustration boiled over and led to Greene's dismissal.

Greene, a sophomore, will likely attempt to transfer to another school in order to continue his playing career. With Greene no longer on the roster, Georgia Tech will have Corey Dennis, Chris Jackson, Jeremy Moore and Darren Waller as the top options at wide receiver when the Yellow Jackets take on the USC Trojans in the Sun Bowl on Dec. 31.
