Around this time in 2013, Cameron Coffman appeared to be the future of the quarterback position at Indiana. A year later, Coffman’s football future will play out elsewhere.
IU head coach Kevin Wilson confirmed Wednesday that Coffman has decided to transfer out of the Hoosiers football program. To where the Missouri native will head next is unknown, although Wilson stated that he will aid Coffman in finding another school.
The decision comes after a season in which Coffman languished behind co-starters Nate Sudfeld and Tre Roberson — both sophomores — on IU’s depth chart. He appeared in just three games and attempted nine passes in 2013.
In 2012, and after Roberson suffered a broken leg very early on, Coffman threw for 2,734 yards, the second-highest total for a Big Ten quarterback that season. It was also the fourth-highest total in the program’s history.
“I just want an opportunity to play somewhere,” Coffman told TheHoosierScoop.com. “I realized Nate is a very good quarterback and so is Tre. I don’t see myself getting that opportunity here, so I’m going to try to find another spot where I can play.”
