QB Perrilloux Tossed off LSU Football Team

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Les Miles has run out of patience with Ryan Perrilloux. The LSU football coach has kicked the promising quarterback off the team.

Miles says Perrilloux "didn't fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete."

Perrilloux has had legal and disciplinary problems throughout his college career. He was suspended last summer and again in February. He was reinstated April 6th but was not allowed to participate in LSU's spring game. Redshirt freshman Jarrett Lee and junior Andrew Hatch split time as the quarterback of the Tigers.

Perrilloux was a backup to Matt Flynn during last season's run to the BCS championship. He completed 51 of 75 passes for eight touchdowns and two interceptions over 12 games.

Perrilloux is expected to finish out the spring semester, according to the university.
