Shane Morris to seek grad transfer

Michigan QB Shane Morris announces his intention to seek his fifth year as a grad transfer after graduation.

After four years, two head coaches and three offensive coordinators, former five-star quarterback Shane Morris' career at Michigan has come to an end. 

 Morris, who completed his fourth year at U-M this season, has one more year of eligibility remaining and announced on Twitter today that he plans to seek a grad transfer and play his fifth year eligibility somewhere else. 

 "This has been by far the most challenging couple months of my life," Morris tweeted. "After many prayers and thoughts with my family and loved ones I have decided to graduate transfer and play my 5th year of college football at another university." 

 Morris further noted that his decision transfer wasn't easy and will always see himself as a "Michigan Man." He also plans to graduate from Michigan this spring. He did not say which school he plans to transfer to. 

 In four seasons at Michigan, Morris made two starts, never threw for a touchdown and was relegated as backup and played mostly as a lead blocker in situations in 2016.

His most memorable moment, however, came when he was left in the game with a concussion during against Minnesota in 2014, which made major headlines and ultimately played a major factor in former U-M coach Brad Hoke being fired.
