BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux is not expected to be on the field when the Tigers open spring practice Friday.
Perrilloux was suspended indefinitely last week by coach Les Miles, who would say only that the 21-year-old had violated unspecified team rules.
The expected absence was announced Tuesday by LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette.
Perrilloux, widely expected to take over the starting job following Matt Flynn's departure from the national championship team, missed a mandatory meeting meant to set the tone for the offseason, his high school coach, Larry Dauterive, has said. Dauterive also said Perrilloux apparently missed classes to attend his father's funeral but didn't notify his coaches.
Dale Perrilloux Sr. died Feb. 7. And Perrilloux has since returned to school, Dauterive said.
``An assistant coach tells me he's doing fine, going to class, making his grades, doing everything he's supposed to,'' Dauterive said. ``We'll just have to wait and see if coach Miles will give him another chance.''
This is at least the third time Perrilloux has been suspended by Miles.
