Semerene, 20, was entering his junior year after originally joining the Hurricanes as a walk-on from Cypress Bay High School. He appeared in all 13 games for the Canes this past season, primarily handling kickoffs – 64 kicks with 26 touchbacks including multiple kickoffs out of bounds.

Miami head coach Mark Richt was swift in his decision to dismiss Semerene.

“After consulting with Director of Athletics Blake James, I have decided to dismiss Jon Semerene from our football team for conduct detrimental to the team and to others,” Richt said. “We expect all of our student-athletes to represent our university and The U family in a first-class and safe manner. While he is no longer part of our program, we will do all we can to help him as he moves forward in his life.”
