CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly has been dismissed from the team two days after he was benched for the second half of the spring game for disagreeing with coaches over whether to go for it on fourth down.
Coach Dabo Swinney said Monday that Kelly was kicked off the team for conduct detrimental to the program. Swinney says Kelly had a pattern of poor behavior. Swinney's statement did not give any details, but did wish Kelly well.
Kelly is the nephew of Buffalo Bills star Jim Kelly. The sophomore was expected to compete with senior Cole Stoudt and freshman Deshaun Watson to replace Tajh Boyd behind center this fall.
Kelly played in five games in 2013, completing 10 of 17 passes for 58 yards and running 16 times for 117 yards.
