Paul Jones, who moved from quarterback to tight end in an attempt to get more playing time, is no longer on the Penn State football team, coach Bill O'Brien confirmed on Wednesday.
O'Brien said Jones, a redshirt sophomore, left for "personal reasons."
Jones was a highly-touted quarterback prospect and red-shirted his freshman year then sat out last season for academic reasons. When he fell to No. 3 on the depth chart this season Jones told O’Brien he wanted to contribute in some way, so the coach moved him to tight end.
