A Jim Thorpe award finalist, given to the nation's top defensive back, Ernest Shazor told The Detroit News that he talked to Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr and informed him of his decision. "I told him what I decided to do," Shazor said. "He told me what he thought, and I'm leaving as friends."
Shazor led the Wolverines in tackles this season, with 84, and said the only thing he wished he could have done was to win the Rose Bowl. Shazor got a hand on Dusty Magnum's game-winning 37-yard field goal. "I just didn't get enough of it," he said.
The 6-foot-4, 229-pound Shazor said the financial opportunity was too much to pass up. "We're not in a situation to be wealthy or rich," Shazor said. "We're just middle-class people, and I want to be a blessing for my family."
