Defensive Tackle Dillon Quinn Leaves School For "Personal Reasons"

Elsa

The senior defensive tackle is the latest in a long line of players who have been suspended, dismissed or willingly left the program under head coach Frank Spaziani.

Boston College senior defensive tackle Dillon Quinn is the latest member of the football program to leave the program. The 6-foot-6, 301 pound lineman has withdrawn from the university for personal reasons.

When asked to comment on the reasons for Quinn's departure, Spaz told the Globe "It's a personal privacy thing."

A four-star recruit out of Trinity-Pawling HS in New York, Quinn played 24 games over three seasons with the Eagles after redshirting in 2009. He missed the first three games of the 2010 season because of a suspension for violating team rules. As a sophomore, he started in eight of the 10 games played, recording 21 tackles, including 10 solo. This season, Quinn was listed as out with a foot injury against Georgia Tech and appeared in just four games this season, recording eight tackles.

Quinn is the latest in a long line of players who have been suspended, dismissed or willingly left the program under Spaziani. The DT is also another upperclassmen who has left the program and a player that plays at an extreme position of need. He's the fourth player in his recruiting class to have left the program, joining defensive lineman Conor O'Neal, offensive lineman Keith Bourne and running back Sterlin Phifer. In addition, Luke Kuechly left a year early for the NFL while running back Rolandan Finch is not in Spaz's doghouse is in Spaz's doghouse and will probably never be seen from again.

Best of luck to Quinn in his future endeavors.
