07:38 AM ET 02.19 | And, now, it seems as if things are piling up in Coral Gables. Jim Larranaga on Monday referred to his first three seasons at the University of Miami as "the most variety of challenges" he's ever faced as a coach. Well, here's another one coach. Tuesday, UM indefinitely suspended forward James Kelly -- a key player off the bench in a nine-man rotation -- for violating team rules. Kelly (6-7, 246) ranks fifth on the team in scoring (7.0) and rebounds (4.0) and was averaging nearly 20 minutes a game, most of them off the bench. "James is a fine young man, but we need him to have a clear focus on what is expected of a student-athlete at the University of Miami," Larra??aga said in a statement released by the school. A source close to the team told the Miami Herald that Kelly's suspension was expected to last three games.

Explains a lot with the "clear focus" insinuation by coach.

College prank backfires - A player replaced the coach's prescription glasses with safety glasses. The coach was not amused and indefinitely suspended Kelly.

Not to mention, it's a school in FLORIDA. Weed everywhere, probably more prevalent even than Colorado.

The coach needs to pay a bit more attention to character when recruiting.
