The SportsXchange

UAB has dismissed wide receiver Jackie Williams for undisclosed reasons, the school announced on Friday.

Williams, who is ranked No. 4 in school history with 140 career receptions, had caught a pass in all 35 games he had played in -- an active streak that is the best in the NCAA coming into this season, according to the Birmingham News.

"Jackie is a good kid and a good player, but what's best for our football program is that we part ways." head coach Garrick McGee said in a statement.

Williams had 52 receptions last year for 799 yards and one touchdown.
