DALLAS (AP) -SMU quarterback Justin Willis has been suspended from spring practice by new coach June Jones for an undisclosed violation of team rules.
Willis, who set a school record with 3,643 yards of total offensive as a sophomore last season, was suspended along with safety Bryce Hudman.
SMU begins its spring workouts Monday.
SMU spokesman Brad Sutton said Jones ``hasn't closed the door to their return.'' Missing spring practice could be costly for Willis as Jones, the former Hawaii coach, installs a new run-and-shoot offense.
The suspension is the second for Willis, Conference USA's freshman of the year in 2006. That same year he was suspended for fighting at an off-campus party and sat out one game.
