Clemson, SC-Sophomore linebacker Eric Sampson has been permanently
dismissed from the Clemson football program. Head Coach Tommy Bowden
made the announcement Tuesday.


"Eric Sampson has been dismissed from the Clemson football
program for conduct unbecoming of a Clemson student-athlete," said
Bowden. "Academic related issues entered into this decision."


Sampson started all 12 games for Clemson this year and was
fourth on the club in tackles this season with 79. He had a career
high 15 tackles in the win at Duke, his only double figure tackle
game of the season. He had six tackles in the victory over South
Carolina when he played 48 of the 51 defensive snaps."


"We have options as far as a replacement in our defensive
lineup," said Bowden. "We will evaluate those options with our staff
in the coming days."
