NORMAN, Okla., Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Cornerback Gary Simon and defensive tackle Marquis Anderson are no longer with Oklahoma's football team, a school spokesman confirmed Monday.

Sunday the independent sports website SoonerScoop said defensive tackle Ramon Williams left the team as well.

No reasons were offered for the departures.

With Anderson and Williams apparently gone, Oklahoma is left with only three defensive tackles for March spring practices -- junior Torrea Peterson, sophomore Jordan Phillips and redshirt freshman Jordan Wade. They are also without a coach, after the firing of longtime position coach Jackie Shipp last week, the (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman reported Monday.
