He was fired a short-time after his second DUI arrest in three-years. He was arrested the second-time on Feb. 4.
Young was officially fired on March 1st. In the letter, he was let go “for not demonstrating significant and sustained improvement in the performance of (his) job responsibilities and failing to maintain standards or conduct suitable and acceptable to the university.” He reportedly was given job warnings since 2017.
He declined to comment when approached about a comment from the Associated Press. While he did have job warnings, the AP, who obtained his records through an open records request, said he did receive several good performance reviews.
Young also received a February letter suggesting that he was doing good in his position.
The 35-year-old Houston, Texas native played six seasons in the NFL. He played five seasons with the Tennessee Titans and one season with the Philadelphia Eagles.
In his career, he made 60 appearances with 50 starts. He had a 31-19 record. He went 755 of 1,304 for 8,964 yards. Young also had 46 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.
