Tab Perry Will Not Return

Jan. 8, 2004

Wide receiver Tab Perry will not return to the UCLA football team, head coach Karl Dorrell announced today.

Perry, who was academically ineligible to compete during the 2003 season, has been dismissed from the University. He has been given his unconditional release and has indicated that he will enroll at a Division IAA school, as yet undetermined.

Due to federal and state privacy laws, UCLA can make no further comment on this issue.

'We were hopeful that Tab would be able to rejoin the team for the 2004 season but that didn't work out,' said Dorrell. 'We will do what we can to help place him at a Division IAA school and we wish him the best of luck in the future.'
