BERKELEY, Calif. -- California has kicked defensive end Chris McCain off the squad for conduct detrimental to the team.

Coach Sonny Dykes announced the move Sunday, a day the Golden Bears lost 55-16 to Oregon to fall to 1-3 on the season.

McCain was supposed to be one of Cal's best defenders this season. But he and his teammates have struggled so far in Dykes' first year, allowing 181 points in the first four games of the season.

McCain has 11 tackles, one quarterback hurry and one forced fumble this season.
