Montana dismisses QB Kemp from football team

MISSOULA (AP) — University of Montana quarterback Gerald Kemp has been dismissed from the football team for what school officials say was a violation of team rules, but did not offer details.

Interim Athletic Director Jean Gee told the Missoulian ( that Kemp's dismissal is not related to his arrest in October when police used a stun gun to subdue him and another player, cornerback Trumaine Johnson, as officers tried to break up a party.

Both pleaded no contest in December to disorderly conduct charges.

The school didn't announce Kemp's dismissal, but his name didn't appear on a team roster on Friday. Johnson remains listed.

Kemp, of San Diego, Calif., was about to start his senior year. Last season he passed for 218 yards and ran for 223, scoring four touchdowns.
