Knoxville, Tn - Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin announced Thursday that guard Quinton Chievous has been granted a release and may transfer without restriction to any program outside the Southeastern Conference.

“We have enjoyed having Quinton as part of this program for the last three years,” Martin said. “He’s worked extremely hard on the court, and he has also matched that effort in the classroom. He’s on track to graduate in three years, which is impressive. His Tennessee teammates and coaches wish him nothing but the best, and we expect him to make an impact wherever he lands.”

Chievous, who redshirted as a true freshman during the 2011-12 season, plans to remain in Knoxville to complete his degree requirements this summer (Communication Studies).

During his three-year career with the Volunteers, the Chicago, Ill., native appeared in 31 contests and averaged 1.9 points and 1.9 rebounds in 8.3 minutes per game.

“I want to thank the university, coach Martin and the staff here for giving me an opportunity,” Chievous said. “It’s a tough decision to leave Tennessee, but I feel like it’s the best decision for me. My teammates here are like brothers to me, and we’re all really close. I’m definitely going to continue supporting them.”
