The once-promising football career of Kellen Lewis has come to an end.

Lewis, who was previously suspended for a period of four months last spring and summer for an unspecified violation of team rules, was dismissed by the Indiana football team Wednesday for yet another violation of a team rule.

Lewis, who played at quarterback his first three seasons at IU, had set 16 school records at the position, and was named to the Second Team All-Big Ten in 2007. After suffering through an injury plagued season in 2008, Lewis was moved to wide receiver this spring, where it was hoped that they could use his dynamic set of skills in a variety of ways.

Bill Lynch, the head coach of Indiana University, had this to say in a statement released by the school:

"We are disappointed to have to make this decision. When you have expectations of those on your team that are not met, you need to do what is ultimately in the overall best interest of your program."
