Running back Montel Harris has been thrown off the Boston College football team, the school announced Tuesday.
“Montel Harris has been permanently dismissed from our football team due to a repeated violation of team rules,” coach Frank 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, a senior who is BC's career-leading rusher with 3,735 yards, has been plagued by knee injuries the past two seasons.
Harris appeared in two games in 2011 and had 31 carries for 146 yards. He also caught three passes for 36 yards. He played in 11 games in the 2010 season.
