It’s been a few days since anything bad has happened with FSU football.

Problem solved.

Xavier Lee's turbulent career at Florida State is over after the Seminoles asked him to move from quarterback to tight end, his father told the Orlando Sentinel.

Xavier Lee's mystifying career with Florida State included coming off the bench and directing a 21-14 victory against Alabama.

Lee, who was a much-heralded recruit out of high school but started only six games for the Seminoles, is not enrolled in spring classes at Florida State, and a Seminoles coach confirmed to the Tallahassee Democrat that Lee was no longer a part of the football program. (Hey, are any of the Noles' football players ACTUALLY enrolled in classes?)

According to Willie Lee, Xavier likely will prepare for an anticipated invitation to the NFL scouting combine, and will not transfer to another school.

"Can't blame him, man," Willie Lee said of his son's decision to leave school, according to the Sentinel. "What else is he going to do -- sit around there and watch other kids go ahead of him?"

Ummm…we don’t know…Maybe, play better?

Xavier Lee: Student athlete.
