Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin reportedly has a line you do not cross when you’re a player for the Owls. Tre’Veon “Nero” Nelson has been dismissed from the team.

Nelson, who signed with the team in December as a junior college transfer, will be looking to play college football elsewhere now. He may have to sit out the season as it is going to be tough for him to sign quickly with a new school.

Kiffin is describing Nelson has “having attitude issues.” Nelson was enrolled at the school when he was dismissed from the football program, according to the Palm Beach Post.

A team source told The Post that Nelson immediately clashed with coaches about the team’s 4th Quarter Program, a training regiment which strength and conditioning coach Wilson Love brought over from Alabama last season. Numerous players credited the program as a key reason the Owls went 11-3 last season and ended the year on a ten-game winning streak.

When confronted about his effort during offseason training by both teammates and coaches, Nelson reacted in a “hostile manner” before other players intervened. Though coaches were willing to give Nelson another opportunity, the receiver continued to feud with teammates before leaving the team.

According to the Palm Beach Post story, Nelson was one of the top junior college wide receivers during the signing class last football season. He signed with the team on December 20th.

247 Sports listed Nelson has a three-star recruit. Nelson signed with the Mississippi State Bulldogs out of high school.
