Montel Harris has been dismissed from the Boston College Eagles football team after repeated violation of team rules, a press release from the school confirmed. Despite his release, Frank Spaziani, the Eagles' head coach, said that he is grateful for Harris.
"Montel Harris has been permanently dismissed from our football team due to a repeated violation of team rules," Spaziani said. "We are grateful for his contributions the past four seasons and will support him in completing his degree requirements and in his future pursuits."
Harris is the school's all-time leading rusher, having racked up 3,735 rushing yards and 27 career touchdowns on 787 carries. Last season, Harris only played in two games, as he never fully recovered from a knee injury that required surgery in the offseason. Harris was 867 rushing yards away from the ACC's all-time leading rusher Ted Brown (4,602 yards).
