University of Miami men’s basketball coach Jim Larrañaga announced Friday that James Kelly has been granted a release and plans to transfer.

“I have made the difficult decision to transfer from the University of Miami,” said Kelly. “I believe it is in the best interest of my family that I continue my education and basketball career closer to them. I would like to thank Coach L for the opportunity he gave me and all of his support during this year.”

Kelly, a 6-7 forward from Ann Arbor, Mich., averaged 6.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 27 games played for the Hurricanes.

“We support the decision James has made to continue his academic and athletic career closer to family,” said Larrañaga. “We wish him nothing but the best.”
