KNOXVILLE - Sophomore safety Darren Myles Jr. won't miss any games despite his recent off-the-field incident, Tennessee football coach Derek Dooley confirmed Monday afternoon to the Times Free Press.
Myles, expected to start this season, was arrested outside a West Knoxville restaurant and night club at 2:29 a.m. on April 18 - mere hours after the Orange and White game - and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
"We are not suspending (Myles) for a game from that incident," Dooley said during an exclusive 30-minute interview with the Times Free Press. "It's a combination of internal discipline and internal education, and that's where we're going with it."
Dooley said Myles' incident was his first since the new head coach arrived in January, and he said the player hasn't had any issues since.
