LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — The Kentucky football program showed off a number of new faces in Tuesday’s practice open to the media, but one of its veterans is gone for good.

The program announced on Twitter that defensive back Vito Tisdale has been dismissed from the team “for a violation of team rules,” and said they have “no additional comment on the matter.”

Tisdale is a Bowling Green, Kentucky native and played three seasons at UK, missing the 2022 season after tearing his ACL in spring practice last year.


The safety tallied 41 tackles and two tackles for loss in his two seasons, starting two games in his sophomore 2021 season.
