Broussard Calls It Quits

LSU running back Alley Broussard has decided to leave the Tiger football team, he announced on Tuesday.

Broussard, a senior from Lafayette, said he will remain in school at LSU, where he is scheduled to graduate in December.

"My heart was no longer in it," Broussard said. "I'm scheduled to graduate in December so I want to use the fall semester to dedicate my time towards getting my degree.

"I enjoyed my four years as part of the LSU football team and I wish my teammates success in 2007."

LSU coach Les Miles thanked Broussard for his service to the Tiger football team.

"We understand Alley's decision and we'll support him as he continues to pursue his college degree. We wish him success in his future endeavors and thank him for the time that he spent with our program."

In four years with the Tigers, Broussard played in 35 games, starting eight times. He finished his career with 1,537 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns. Broussard, who missed all of the 2005 season with a knee injury, returned to action last year, rushing for 281 yards and four touchdowns on 74 carries.
