MIAMI (AP) - FIU has dismissed running back Kedrick Rhodes from the team for a violation of team policy.
Rhodes was the Panthers' leading rusher last season with 714 yards and was slated to start this year as a senior. In 2011, he ran for 1,149 yards.
The school announced the dismissal on Monday but did not specify the violation.
The Miami Herald reported this weekend that Rhodes had been arrested for firing a gun on campus.
Without Rhodes, sophomore Shane Coleman becomes the leading returning rusher among running backs for FIU. The sophomore had eight carries for 34 yards last season.
