Clemson, SC (Sports Network) -
Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly, nephew of Buffalo Bills Hall of Famer Jim Kelly, has been dismissed from the team for conduct detrimental to the program.
Kelly was benched for the second half of Saturday's spring game after a confrontation on the field with two members of the Clemson staff. He completed 10-of-18 passes for 113 yards and two interceptions before being benched.
"I have dismissed Chad Kelly for conduct detrimental to our program," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement. "He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program. I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be. I wish him nothing but the best in the future academically and athletically."
