Montel Harris, the leading rusher in Boston College football history, has been kicked off the team for a repeated violation of team rules.
Boston College Eagles running back Montel Harris, who became the school's all-time leading rusher last season before losing most of his year to a knee injury, has been tossed off the team due to a repeated violation of team rules.
Harris rushed for 3,735 yards over four seasons with the Eagles. His senior year was cut short because of the knee injury, but he was granted a medical hardship waiver and a fifth year of eligibility.
Coach Frank Spaziani said Tuesday that Harris won't return to the team.
"Montel Harris has been permanently dismissed from our football team due to a repeated violation of team rules," Spaziani said in a statement released by the school. "We are grateful for his contributions the past four seasons and will support him in completing his degree requirements and in his future pursuits."
