WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue quarterback Justin Siller has
been dismissed from school through 2009-10 for an academic
The redshirt sophomore from Detroit was expected to compete with
fifth-year senior Joey Elliott for the starting job next season.
Siller started three games last year, including his first start
against Michigan when he led the Boilermakers to a 48-42 win and
was the Big Ten's offensive co-player of the week. He completed 21
of 34 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 77
yards and another score in that game.
Purdue coach Danny Hope said in a statement Friday that Siller
made a bad academic decision and deserved to be punished. He would
not elaborate on the violation.
