University of Tennessee at Chattanooga defensive back Dee Virgin and receiver Ke'Von Hall have been dismissed from the football program, the university confirmed on Tuesday.

Virgin, a rising senior, and Hall, a redshirt freshman, were both dismissed for a violation of team rules. Virgin, who would have been entering his senior season, was arrested for theft of property over $500 on campus.

Virgin had 36 starts his his career and was a two-time All-Southern Conference selection, being named first team in 2014 before making the second team last year after 40 tackles (4.5 for loss), two passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He had an interception returned for a touchdown in 2014 against Jacksonville State.

He was also a primary kickoff returner, with a 20.8-yard average in 2015.

Hall was a former three-star prospect from Memphis Melrose that redshirted last season.
