Running back Khalil Herbert, Kansas' leading rusher, is no longer with the Jayhawks, coach Les Miles has announced.
Herbert said in a statement he posted on social media Thursday that he decided to redshirt before Kansas' game at TCU last weekend. He wanted to return to the Jayhawks for his redshirt senior season, he said, but things did not work out.
"Redshirting had many unforeseen consequences that my family and I did not know would result from this decision," he said. "Although things did not work out the way either side intended, I want you to know my intention was not to hurt the university, Jayhawk Nation, or my teammates."
Herbert had traveled with the team to Fort Worth, Texas, last Friday for the TCU game, then had a lengthy conversation with Miles that night about leaving, the coach told reporters earlier this week.
