University of Tennessee football Coach Derek Dooley was publicly critical of his quarterback, Tyler Bray Thursday night in Nashville.
Dooley was at Lipscomb's Allen Arena for the annual Tennessee Sports Picnic when he addressed the recent troubles of Bray.
The University of Tennessee player was named in a pair of police reports this week and accused of vandalism.
A witness claimed to see him and another man throwing beer bottles and golf balls at parked cars.
"It's a silly incident. It shouldn't have happened with a little better judgment. Probably wouldn't be talking about it if it wasn't Tyler Bray and he wasn't a quarterback at Tennessee," Dooley said.
Charges have been not been filed and indications are they won't be in at least one of the incidents.
Dooley wouldn't comment if Bray was facing discipline from within the football program.
Bray is entering his junior season and is on the watch list for Manning and Davey O'Brien Awards.
