LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky football coach Rich Brooks says
quarterback Curtis Pulley has been kicked off the team for
violating team rules.
Brooks made the surprise announcement Tuesday at the team's
preseason media day. Last week, Brooks had said Pulley would miss
playing time for his recent brushes with the law but still had a
chance to win the starting job for the Wildcats.
Pulley was arrested on traffic charges last month in Hardin
County. In June, he also received a citation for marijuana
possession in Louisville. Pulley missed last season because of
Pulley had been competing with sophomore Mike Hartline to
succeed Andre Woodson as the Wildcats' starting quarterback. The
dismissal likely moves Will Fidler to second on the depth chart.
Fidler also was arrested last month on a disorderly conduct charge
for an incident outside a Lexington restaurant.
