BEAUMONT - Lamar University quarterback Jeremy Johnson has decided to transfer announced head football coach Ray Woodard on Tuesday.
Johnson, who spent a redshirt season at West Virginia before playing at Lamar last year, has three years of eligibility remaining.
"This is a decision he feels is best for him," said Woodard. "I wish him luck. We will continue to build and coach the players that want to be here at Lamar University."
The former Silsbee High School star appeared in six games for the Cardinals last season, completing 16 of his 36 passes for 225 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. Johnson also rushed for 217 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
The move leaves Lamar with redshirt sophomore Caleb Berry and junior college transfer Ryan Mossakowski as the two quarterbacks currently on the roster. Incoming freshman Matthew Bergeron from Mandeville (La.) High School will be the third quarterback on the roster.
