With little hope of moving any further up the depth chart, an Oregon State quarterback has decided to ply his football wares at a lower level.
In a tweet posted to his Twitter account, Richie Harrington announced that he is leaving the Beavers football program. Harrington will be transferring to Southern Utah, an FCS-level program.
As he’s transferring down a level, Harrington will be eligible to play in 2013 and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
“Ready for a new chapter,” the player wrote in the tweet.
Coming out of Oaks Christian (Calif.), the 6-1, 224-pound Harrington walked on to the Beavers in 2011 and appeared in three games in 2012. He completed six-of-nine passes for 66 yards last season.
