Syracuse dismisses senior Ashton Broyld from football team

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Syracuse has dismissed Ashton Broyld from the football team for violating team policy.

Coach Scott Shafer announced the move Tuesday but did not say what Broyld did.

Broyld is a 6-foot-4 senior whose time at Syracuse has been slowed by injury. He never found his niche, having played quarterback, running back, outside wide receiver and slot receiver. He was moved to hybrid back this spring and was listed as the third-team hybrid back after spring ball.

He played 25 games for the Orange from 2012 to 2014. He had 74 receptions for 679 yards and rushed 38 times for 173 yards with one touchdown.
