Football QB Jennings Given Release to Transfer
Assoc. Athletic Director/Communications
BATON ROUGE – LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings has been given his release and will transfer to another school to finish his collegiate career, head coach Les Miles announced on Thursday.
Jennings, who is expected to remain at LSU until he graduates over the summer, spent three years with the Tigers where he posted a 9-4 record as the starting quarterback. Jennings started LSU’s bowl win over Iowa in the 2014 Outback Bowl and then started all but one game the following year as a sophomore.
“Anthony did a lot of really good things for our program,” Miles said. “As a freshman, he came in for an injured Zach Mettenberger and led us to a last-minute win over Arkansas and then he helped us to eight wins the following year as a sophomore.
“This is an opportunity for Anthony to put himself in a position to help another team have success. We wish him nothing but good fortune in the future and we appreciate all that he did while he was part of our program.”
In three years with the Tigers, Jennings played in 24 games, starting 13 times. He completed 124-of-256 passes for 1,792 yards and 12 touchdowns and added another 310 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
