USC football: Markeith Ambles off the team, Lane Kiffin says
"We wish him the best of luck and we're moving forward, and hopefully he does good things," said Kiffin, who declined to discuss the specifics of Ambles' departure.
There had been speculation that Ambles, a sophomore from Georgia, might remain at USC and redshirt. But a series of disciplinary issues in his first season, coupled with USC's scholarship limitations over the next three seasons, might have contributed to his exit.
Ambles could not be reached for comment.
