BOISE-- Former backup quarterback Jimmy Laughrea and defensive end Sam Ukwuachu are no longer members of Boise State's football team.
In a Tuesday news release, university officials said Laughrea had left the Broncos and Ukwuachu had been dismissed for violation of team rules.
Ukwuachu, a redshirt sophomore from Pearland, Texas, had 4.5 sacks during the 2012 season. He practiced with the team as recently as last week.
Laughrea, a redshirt sophomore from Rocklin, Calif., did not see any playing time in 2012.
