Mobile native Chris Casher has left the football team at Florida State, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Friday.

Fisher did not give a reason for Casher's departure, but a source indicated to AL.com that the decision was related to academics. It was not immediately clear where, if anywhere, Casher planned to continue his college football career.

Casher, a fifth-year senior and former top recruit, has seen his career marred by injury. He moved to tight end in the spring, but was not listed on the fall roster released earlier this week.
