In an interview with NJ.com, Tennessee Tech red-shirt senior transferee Hayden Rettig announced that he is leaving the school’s football program due to personal reasons.
Since joining the college ranks out of high school, Hayden Rettig has bounced around between three colleges LSU, Rutgers and Tennessee Tech. Mainly known for his time at Rutgers, Rettig only played in 4 games for the university where he passed for 233 passing yards and 2 touchdowns while completing 56% of his passes (14/25). After a minimal sophomore season, Rettig decided to try his luck at landing a starting job in the FCS ranks and join the Golden Eagles.
Since joining the Golden Eagles in 2016, Hayden Rettig has not seen any regular season snaps and was likely listed behind Andrew Sale at starter before eventually being taken off the team’s official roster. This could be the end of the road of Rettig for football due to this being his final year of eligibility.
