The transfer season continues unabated today, with Colorado the latest to suffer attrition at the quarterback position.
On Twitter Friday afternoon, Nick Hirschman announced that he has “decided to move on from CU and continue my graduate education and football career elsewhere.” Hirschman said he made his decision Wednesday and presumably informed the coaching staff shortly thereafter.
“I loved my time here and the relationships I’ve had with my fellow teammates I wouldn’t trade for anything,” one of Hirschman’s tweets read. “Part of me will always be a Buff and thank you to Buffnation for all the support.”
One CU official told ESPN.com that Hirschman is looking at possibly transferring to “an Ivy (League)-type school.”
On the Buffs’ most recent depth chart, released April 2, Hirschman was listed behind senior and former Kansas transfer Jordan Webb, junior and former Texas transfer Connor Wood and redshirt freshman Shane Dillon.
Hirschman played in eight games last season, with the highlight coming in the season finale against Utah as he threw for 306 yards. It was also a lowlight for Hirschman as he tossed four interceptions in the Buffs’ 11th and final loss of the season.
Webb started the first nine games in 2012, while Hirschman started two of the final three. Wood started the second-to-last game of the year.
