Duke safety Zack Asack, a former starting quarterback, has been dismissed from the program for violating team policy, coach David Cutcliffe announced Friday.
Asack had moved from quarterback to safety before spring practice this season. He started six games in 2005 as a freshman but was on academic suspension for plagiarism in 2006 and lost his job to Thaddeus Lewis.
A school spokesman said Asack is still enrolled in school but has no chance to return to the team. He played in 26 career games with seven starts, throwing seven touchdown passes and 14 interceptions.
