BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux, who had legal and disciplinary problems throughout his college career, was kicked off the team.
Coach Les Miles said Perrilloux ``didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete.'' Perrilloux was a backup to Matt Flynn for the Tigers, the defending national champions.
``Ryan was given every opportunity to be a part of this football team,'' Miles said Friday.
In 12 games last season, Perrilloux completed 51 of 75 passes for eight touchdowns and two interceptions.
Perrilloux, who was suspended by the Tigers last summer, was on the fringe of a counterfeiting investigation and was caught trying to enter a Baton Rouge casino with false identification. He also was involved in a fracas at a nightclub in November, but was cleared of wrongdoing.
Miles suspended Perrilloux again in mid-February after he missed a team meeting, skipped some classes and was late for a handful of conditioning workouts. Perrilloux had to meet academic requirements and do extra conditioning work before he was reinstated April 6, in time to go with the Tigers to meet President Bush at the White House.
Perrilloux was not allowed to play in LSU's spring game.
Before his last reinstatement, Miles said Perrilloux had been doing better with his classwork. During the spring, redshirt freshman Jarrett Lee and junior Andrew Hatch split time as the quarterback of the Tigers.
Perrilloux is expected to finish out the spring semester, LSU said.
