CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson defensive back Buddy Williams has been dismissed from the team.
Coach Tommy Bowden said Sunday night was kicked off the team for an unspecified violation of team rules and is not expected to return.
Williams played in every game this season, mostly on special teams. He had 17 tackles in 2003.
Williams has returned to his home in Tallahassee, Fla., Clemson officials said.
The Tigers will play Tennessee on Jan. 2 in the Peach Bowl.
