After getting beat out for the starting quarterback role in 2016. Shane Morris announced via his Twitter account that he will be leaving Michigan and will be transferring to the Chippewas of Central Michigan.
Shane Morris spent four seasons with the Michigan Wolverines and played sparingly during his time with the team. Morris played in 11 games over three active seasons with the team. Shane Morris’s 2015 season was put on the back burner as he barley appeared in a game that season as he was beat out by then new university arrival in former Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock.
Shane Morris will now be finishing up his college career with the Chippewas and he is likely the clear favorite to win the starting job. Shane Morris will be replacing quarterback Cooper Rush who graduated and is now a NFL Draft hopeful.
Shane Morris will really have to impress in his lone season with Central Michigan as his film with Michigan is very very limited. Shane Morris will look to improve his skills as he will be working with offensive coordinator Morris Watts and quarterbacks coach Gino Guidugli.
