After getting significant playing time in 2012, Cam Coffman didn't see the field much for Indiana in 2013. On Wednesday, coach Kevin Wilson announced that Coffman was transferring.
In 2012, Coffman threw for 2,734 yards and completed almost 61 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He was forced into playing time due to a Tre Roberson's broken leg.
Coffman entered the 2013 season in a battle with Nate Sudfield and Roberson and ended up the third quarterback in the competition. He threw just nine passes and completed two of them. He'll be a senior with a redshirt year available, so he'll have a season of eligibility wherever he transfers.
Both Sudfield and Roberson return for Indiana, which had a prolific offense last season. Its shortcomings were on the defensive side of the ball. The Hoosiers averaged over 500 yards of total offense and were 17th in the nation in yards per play. However, the Indiana defense was 117th in the country in points given up and its opponents averaged a whopping 6.8 yards per play.
That was a major reason the Hoosiers finished 5-7. Defensive coordinator Doug Mallory was fired last week.
Coffman is the brother of former Missouri and current Atlanta Falcons TE Chase Coffman.
