Last week, Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk made headlines when he hinted at a possible transfer to Eastern Kentucky; the school has now confirmed the news.
Mauk has signed an athletic grant-in-aid agreement with Eastern Kentucky, according to a report from the St. Louis Dispatch’s Dave Matter. The school is four hours away from Mauk’s hometown Kenton, Ohio.
The former Tigers starter graduated from Missouri last week after being dismissed from the team in January. The dismissal came just days after being indefinitely suspended from the team when a controversial video surfaced of a person identified as Mauk, according to a report from the St. Louis Dispatch’s Dave Matter, seemingly snorting a line of white powder.
At the time, Missouri coach Barry Odom cited a “failure to live up to expectations in recent weeks” as the reason for Mauk’s dismissal. However, it appears that Mauk’s football career will now conclude at Eastern Kentucky, where he is expected to be eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer.
