Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said Monday that there would be no discipline or additional fallout from a Friday night incident involving quarterback Chad Kelly at his brother’s high school game.

Casey Kelly took a late hit out of bounds, according to reports, and Chad headed on to the field. Chad Kelly, wearing jeans and a sweatshirt, was restrained in an effort to get him back to the sideline.

Casey is a sophomore quarterback at St. Joseph’s Collegiate, which was playing Bishop Timon on Friday night.

Freeze said he had spoken with Chad and his family Friday night in the immediate aftermath of the incident.

“He was very apologetic that it brought a bad light on him and our program,” Freeze told reporters Monday. “But I think the events that happened could have happened to a lot of us. He know he cannot continue to do that … ”

Kelly said Monday he regretted running onto the field.

The game was suspended after the brawl and officials had to be escorted off the field by Buffalo police, according to reports. Police also helped the St. Joe’s team to its buses to leave the stadium. No arrests were made.

No decision has been made on how to handle the game. Conference officials were waiting for the game report to make any determinations.
