A player who began the 2015 season as Fresno State’s starting quarterback will begin the 2016 season on another roster.
Fresno State announced in a press release that Zack Greenlee has been granted a release from the Bulldogs football program. The school noted in the release that Greenlee will finish out the spring academic semester at Fresno State before seeking another institution to which to transfer.
“I am very thankful for the dedication that Zack brought to our program,” head coach Tim DeRuyter said. “He was a good teammate and a good player to coach. He now wishes to pursue other avenues with his education and football career and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward.”
Greenlee started the last season as the starter, but wound up losing the job shortly after serving a suspension. All told, Greenlee started five games last season after entering the year with one career start.
In the games in which he did play, Greenlee completed just under 47 percent of his 156 passes for 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. Six of those touchdowns came in a 42-14 win over Hawaii, while five of his six interceptions came in the last three games of the year.
Greenlee was a three-star member of the Bulldogs’ 2013 recruiting class.
