NOTRE DAME — Notre Dame cornerback Rashad Kinlaw is no longer with the team.

"I dismissed him from the program," head coach Brian Kelly said following Notre Dame's 11th practice of the spring Friday, April 4.

Kelly didn't offer much back story surrounding Kinlaw's dismissal, expressing that Kinlaw "didn't live up to the rules that I lay out within our football program."

Kelly does not know if the sophomore is still enrolled at the university.

Kinlaw didn't play his freshman season, maintaining a year of eligibility in the process, and was expected to serve as a backup corner to KeiVarae Russell, Cole Luke and Devin Butler this season. Kinlaw came to Notre Dame in 2013 as a three-star recruit out of Galloway, N.J.
