Chad Kelly Dismissed From Clemson Football Team

South Carolina State v Clemson

Chad Kelly, nephew of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, was dismissed from the Clemson football team on Monday. Kelly, a reshirt sophomore, was in contention to replace Tajh Boyd. WYFF reports police escorted Kelly from the football facilities.

Here’s the full statement from coach Dabo Swinney:

“I have dismissed Chad Kelly for conduct detrimental to our program. 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.”

There were reports that Kelly got into an altercation with members of Tigers’ coaching staff , including Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris, during the school’s Orange and White¬†Game on Saturday. He didn’t play in the second half after throwing for 113 yards.

Kelly tweeted this earlier Monday afternoon:
