Last night on his Twitter feed, Dylan Favre posted the lyrics to a “song” by somebody I’ve never heard of and am too old to understand anyway.
“Making major changes to the life I’m living. I have no choice I gotta prove I made the right decision.”
Those words turned out to be prophetic less than 24 hours later.
Culminating rumors that have been simmering for weeks, Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen confirmed Saturday that the nephew of future NFL Hall of Famer and serial flip-flopper Brett Favre has decided to transfer from the football program.
“Dylan’s decided to transfer, and we wish him the best,” Mullen said following practice Saturday. “He has our full support with everything. He did a great job for us during his time here.”
There was no official word on why Favre decided to transfer — or if he plans to continue the family tradition and actually stay in Starkville — although a search for more playing time would be a logical place to start.
Where the redshirt freshman may land is also unknown. A school in the state of Mississippi might be a good place to start; Southern Miss, his uncle’s alma mater, was one of a handful of schools to offer Favre a scholarship two years ago. That school recently underwent a coaching change, however, so it’s unclear if the interest would still be there on that end.
A member of MSU’s 2010 recruiting class, Favre completed 13-of-26 passes this season for 119 yards and a touchdown. He also scored two rushing touchdowns in 2011.
