Just a few days ago, Kansas was bracing for the probability of not having leading rusher Khalil Herbert for an undetermined amount of time. Today, Kansas head coach Les Miles confirmed Herbert will not be back in a Kansas uniform at all.
“We would like to wish Khalil Herbert and his family well moving forward,” Miles said in a released statement. “With that said, Khalil is no longer a member of our football program and will not participate in any football activities.”
It was previously reported Herbert left the football program initially for personal reasons, the details of which were not revealed. Whatever the personal issues were off the field, it was clearly serious enough to no longer have Herbert be a member of the team, regardless of who made the decision.
Herbert left the team as the leading rusher for the Jayhawks with 384 yards. He rushed for 187 yards in a big road win at Boston College to help snap a long road losing streak against power-conference opponents for the Jayhawks.
