A North Dakota State College of Science football player has quit school after the head coach removed him from the team following revelations the player is homosexual.

Jamie Kuntz, 18, of Dickinson, was seen kissing his boyfriend in the press box by teammates on the sidelines, according to a story published on stranger.com.

It is unknown what team violation Kuntz broke, but the report by Dan Savage says the former Wildcats student-athlete was reprimanded by coaches following a Sept. 1 road game in Pueblo, Colo.
