Ryan Perrilloux’s career at Louisiana State has come to an end.
The quarterback was kicked off the team Friday by coach Les Miles, who issued a four-paragraph statement saying the troubled player “was given every opportunity to be part of this football team. In the end, he didn’t fulfill his obligation as an LSU student-athlete.”
Perrilloux’s time at Baton Rouge was marked by a series of incidents that led to runs-ins with police and three suspensions from the team. He missed all of spring drills after a suspension believed to be for missed classes and team meetings.
But he was reinstated and joined his teammates for a trip to the White House, where the Tigers were honored for winning the national championship. The reinstatement came amid reports that Perrilloux had been involved in an incident at a bar-restaurant and that Miles had called the establishment to apologize for his player’s behavior.
Perrilloux’s departure leaves LSU with Andrew Hatch, a walk-on transfer from Harvard, and Jarrett Lee, a redshirt freshman, as the top quarterbacks.
