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’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.
