BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU running back Alley Broussard announced Tuesday that he is leaving the Tigers football team.
Broussard, a senior from Lafayette, will remain at the school, where he's scheduled to graduate this fall.
``My heart was no longer in it,'' he said. ``I'm scheduled to graduate in December, so I want to use the fall semester to dedicate my time toward getting my degree.
``I enjoyed my four years as part of the LSU football team and I wish my teammates success in 2007.''
In four years, Broussard played in 35 games, starting eight times. He finished his career with 1,537 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns. Broussard missed all of the 2005 season with a knee injury, but returned last year and rushed for 281 yards and four touchdowns on 74 carries.
``We understand Alley's decision and we'll support him as he continues to pursue his college degree,'' coach Les Miles said. ``We wish him success in his future endeavors.''
