Football: Sweeney to transfer

Quarterback Beau Sweeney is transferring out of the program, Jeff Tedford said tonight.

This obviously doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Sweeney is not one of the three finalists for the starting job.

“He’s a backup here and he wants a chance to play,” Tedford said. “He’s a great kid and we love him. We wish him all the best.”

Tedford said he’s released Sweeney from his scholarship.  He said Sweeney is looking to transfer to an FCS school so he can play this season.
