EUGENE (KMTR) - University of Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris has been dismissed from the Ducks’ football program for a violation of team rules. The announcement was made Monday by Ducks’ Head Coach Chip Kelly Monday.
Harris was suspended indefinitely on October 24th. Since that time he has been prohibited from all football activities and missed Oregon’s last five games of the regular season in addition to last Friday’s PAC-12 Conference Championship.
The Fresno, California junior had been credited with nine tackles and one interception in six games this season. Harris missed 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.
