Former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois is getting a second chance with Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic. He was dismissed earlier this year from FSU after a video was released by his ex-girlfriend that is allegedly of a domestic violence incident.

According to 247Sports, Francois will walk-on at FAU:
The next chapter for former Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois will be at Florida Atlantic, where he’ll walk-on to play for Lane Kiffin. Francois has two years of eligibility remaining.
Francois was dismissed from the Seminoles program in February one day after video of a possible domestic incident came to light on Instagram. In January of 2018, Francois was cleared of a separate domestic violence incident.
“I put myself in a terrible situation,” Francois told 247Sports. “I’ve learned from it. I take full responsibility of everything that happened.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. I just want to learn from it and grow from it. That won’t happen again. This has impacted my life far more than anyone can imagine. It helped me grow as a man and I’m ready to embark on new beginnings.”
Well he obviously learned his lesson. He doesn’t even have to miss any football. It’s good to see you can still pretty much do whatever you want and still get away with it if you’re good at sports. I for one was worried we were losing that benefit as a society.
