South Florida has dismissed Chris Perry from the program, head coach Orlando Antigua announced on Thursday.

“We have standards and expectations at USF and everyone will be held accountable to them,” Antigua said in the release. “I appreciate Chris’ contributions to our program and wish him the best. I’m excited about the team we have returning and the newcomers we have joining us for next season. We have talented players in our program that are working hard to achieve our goals.”

Perry is a 6-foot-8 junior from Florida. He averaged 10.1 points and 6.6 boards this past season.

Earlier this spring, Antigua dismissed sophomore Roddy Peters, a former top 25 recruit that averaged 9.8 points and 3.5 assists, from the program.

The Bulls went 8-25 this past season, finishing just 4-14 in the AAC.
