As was revealed on Wednesday by head coach Kevin Wilson, Indian Hoosiers quarterback Cameron Coffman will be transferring to another program. Coffman has not yet selected his destination.
Coffman excelled in 2012, throwing for 2,734 yards — good for second in the Big Ten in passing yards per game — and 15 touchdowns. However, Coffman was demoted in 2013, relegated to backing up sophomores Nate Sudfeld and Tre Roberson. He wound up only appearing in three games for the Hoosiers, attempting a mere nine passes and throwing one interception.
Wilson, in his announcement of Coffman’s decision, praised the young man’s attitude:
He’s a great player. Great kid. Was in a great competition this past year, but in a very competitive deal with Nate and Tre, he kinda came in where he’s the odd man out. He’s got a great attitude, he’s a great student, well over a 3.0. He’s just looking to transfer to find a place to play here. … We’re working to help him find a spot (The Hoosier Scoop).
Citing a desire for more playing time, Coffman said he wants to wind up at a program where he “can compete against someone who’s never had a starting job.”
