Georgia Tech QB Vad Lee reportedly to transfer
Georgia Tech quarterback Vad Lee plans to transfer after one season as the team’s starting quarterback, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Ken Sigiura reported Thursday.
Lee is a redshirt sophomore, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining. Lee confirmed his plans with ESPN.com’s Joe Schad on Thursday, and he suggested that he was not a fan of head coach Paul Johnson’s option-based offense.
“The triple option was never really my thing,” Lee told Schad.
Georgia Tech completed its season on Monday with a 25-17 loss to Ole Miss in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl. Lee led the Yellow Jackets to a 7-6 record this season.
Lee completed just 45.6 percent of his passes this season, throwing 11 touchdowns to 10 interceptions. He also rushed for eight touchdowns on 182 carries.
GT QB Vad Lee said he will transfer. “The triple option was never really my thing,” Lee said.
