Tyrann Mathieu — aka “The Honey Badger” — has just been kicked off the LSU football team for violating team and school rules.

20-year-old Mathieu was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011 … and was supposed to be a frontrunner for the award in 2012.  In other words … the defensive back was considered one of the best players in college football.

LSU coach Les Miles is currently addressing the media … and has said:

“Tyrann Mathieu is no longer on our team. Violated team policies.”

Miles added, “Lost a quality person, enjoyed going to work with him … we”ll miss him.”

Les wouldn”t explain the nature of the violation, but said … “I can”t imagine he wouldn”t want to transfer and go play football.”

Honey Badger — who will be entering his junior year — was suspended for a game last season … after reportedly testing positive for synthetic marijuana.

It”s unclear if his dismissal is drug related.
