Distrust among Texas A&M’s coaches and quarterbacks was a big reason why freshman quarterback Kyler Murray decided to request his transfer from the school, according to a report by ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton.
Hamilton cited a lack of trust and certainty in the direction of the Aggies offensive coaching staff as the biggest reasons both Murray and sophomore quarterback Kyle Allen have sought to leave the school within the past week.
The 5-star recruit, who is also a talented baseball player, can transfer to any school outside of the SEC, excluding Texas A&M’s non-conference opponents through the next four years. Murray has been released from his scholarship, according to Hamilton. The biggest snag could be getting released from his National Letter of Intent. Texas A&M would have to grant Murray’s release or else he would have to appeal and, if not granted, be forced to lose a year of eligibility if he transferred, according to Hamilton.
Murray appeared in eight games for the Aggies during his freshman campaign. He completed 59.5 percent of his passes for 686 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions while running for an additional 335 yards and a touchdown.
