"Ramon has been granted his release to pursue other opportunities and we wish him well in his future endeavors,” said head coach Nick Charlton in Friday's press release.

At spring practice in March, Charlton didn't comment on Jefferson's status but said he was not participating in team activities at that time.

The University of Maine says it has no further comment at this time.
