2 IU gridders plan to transfer
BLOOMINGTON (AP) — Quarterback Cam Coffman and linebacker Jordan Wallace are transferring from Indiana.
Coffman came to Indiana as a junior college recruit and became the starter in 2012 after Tre Roberson was injured. Coffman threw for 2,734 yards with 15 TDs and 11 interceptions but found himself third on the depth chart behind Roberson and Nate Sudfeld in 2013. Coach Kevin Wilson said in a video posted on the Hoosiers website that he is trying to help Coffman find a new school where he can get more playing time.
Wallace, a 6-foot, 234-pound linebacker, did not play last season after getting a medical redshirt in 2012. The Indianapolis native is expected to land at Indiana State, a Football Championship Subdivision school and will not have to sit out.
