At least for a day, you can forget the Rob Bolden transfer rumors… again.
Just as it appeared his future with Penn State was up in air for the [/counts...] third time in the past year and a half, Bolden’s high school coach told Travis Johnson of the Centre Times Daily that his former quarterback has “no plans to seek a transfer” from Penn State.
Bolden has been an on-again, off-again starter for the Nittany Lions since 2010 and looked beyond shaky during Penn State’s spring game last month. New coach Bill O’Brien said he expects to name a starter at QB at the end of this month, although it would absolutely be a shock if it was Bolden’s name that was announced.
Instead, the job is likely going to Matt McGloin, who has been taking turns with Bolden as PSU’s starting QB.
In January, 2011, Bolden announced that he would be transferring from Penn State, but after being denied a release from his scholarship by then-head coach Joe Paterno, he decided to stay only to change his mind again… and then again in July.
