Clemson Tigers dismiss Chad Kelly

It has not been a good couple of days for Clemson Tigers’ quarterback Chad Kelly.

First, he got into an altercation with a coach during the Tigers’ spring game on Saturday and was benched for the remainder of the team’s annual scrimmage.

Then, on Monday, a report surfaced that Kelly had been escorted out of the West End Zone by university police.

Now, according to Roy Philpott of, Kelly has been dismissed from the team.


Kelly, a redshirt sophomore, was expected to battle true freshman Deshaun Watson, who enrolled early but suffered a collarbone injury, and Cole Stoudt for the starting quarterback position.

Kelly completed 10 of 17 passes for 58 yards last season.
