Former Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback Michael Brewer’s request to transfer to another program within the state of Texas was denied last week in a unanimous decision by the Texas Tech Athletics Council.
Brewer, understandably upset, vented to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal about the decision:
There were two graduate programs — one at Texas, one at TCU — that best suited my future as far as receiving a master’s degree goes. And we also felt like whenever I was done playing football and done with college that being in Austin with the connections I have with my family and being in the Dallas-Fort Worth area with the connections I have with my family up there, that would be best suited for me as far as getting a job and all that.
By them denying me the right to play anywhere in the state of Texas or in the Big 12, my family can’t really come watch me play and be involved in the last two years of my college experience, which is disappointing.
Brewer also accused the Texas Tech medical staff of misdiagnosing the back injury that kept him out of all but four games last season.
