University of Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris has been dismissed from the Ducks' football program for a violation of team rules, according to Ducks head coach Chip Kelly.
Harris was suspended indefinitely Oct. 24 and has since been prohibited from all football activities, missing Oregon's last five games of the regular season in addition to last Friday's Pac-12 Conference Championship win over UCLA.
Kelly did not elaborate on whether a new development led him to boot Harris off the team.
POLL: Will Harris be missed?
Last June, Harris was cited by Oregon State Police for driving 118 mph on Interstate 5 while he had a suspended license. He later paid a fine of $1,620 in full.
A few months later, Harris was stopped by police again, and this time was cited for several traffic infractions, including driving on a suspended license, driving without insurance and failure to wear a seatbelt.
The Fresno, CA, junior had been credited with nine tackles and one interception in six games this season after missing the season-opening loss to LSU while serving another suspension.
The 2010 consensus All-American finishes his Oregon career with 61 tackles in 27 appearances, eight interceptions for one touchdown, and returned 38 punts for a 16.2-yard average and four more scores.
