                  === Clemson QB Kelly dismissed from team ===
 Clemson,  SC  (SportsNetwork.com) - 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."
 Kelly,  a  redshirt sophomore,  was  competing  with  senior Cole  Stoudt  and
 freshman  Deshaun Watson  for  the opportunity  to replace  Tajh  Boyd as  the
 starter for the 2014 season.
 Kelly  redshirted the 2012 season, then suffered a torn ACL in the 2013 spring
 game.  He  came back to play  Sept. 7 against  S.C. State and appeared in five
 games  overall,  completing 10-of-17 passes for  58 yards and rushing 16 times
 for 117 yards and a touchdown.
