Clemson QB Kelly Bryant to transfer after demotion

Reddit users explain why Kelly Bryant isn't Clemson's starter with 8 analogies from other sports

After some soul searching, Bryant will transfer from Clemson.

Kelly Bryant has made a decision to transfer from Clemson after losing the starting quarterback job, he told The Greenville News on Wednesday.

Over the weekend, Clemson Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney informed Bryant he would no longer be the starter.

Swinney was "sad" and "disappointed" with Bryant's choice.

With the new redshirt rules in the NCAA (players can appear in four games without burning RS), Bryant will still have one year of eligibility remaining to play elsewhere. Clemson's fifth game is Saturday. He also said Bryant has the right to feel the way he does. This would leave Auburn with a void at quarterback. Lawrence was an early enrollee in January and ranked as the top pocket passer in the country coming out of high school in Cartersville, Ga. He's a graduate, and like I said, he's one of the best young people you could ever be around. I think Swinney did everything right. I feel like Kelly would've continued to help us win, play a lot, but it's not what he wanted to do. I certainly could have started him this week, which would have limited his options, but that's not how we operate here. "I wish him nothing but the best".

"He won the job, and he was the starter for us past year and did a great job, and he came out of camp slightly ahead, and so he continued to start these first four games, but I definitely feel he's been given a fair shot". This season for the Tigers (4-0), Bryant tossed for 461 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He's completed 39 of 60 passes for 600 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions. He added a fourth in the second half.

"I feel like it's what's best for me and my future", Bryant told the News. I've been here. I've waited my turn. I've never been in trouble with anything. "To me, it was kind of a slap in the face".

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant feels he didn't get a fair shot to keep his job and has chose to transfer after highly touted freshman Trevor Lawrence was named the starter for the third-ranked Tigers.

Bryant had started the past 18 games for the Tigers, going 16-2. He was a backup for his first two seasons, but took over the starting job upon Deshaun Watson's declaration for the NFL Draft where he was taken 17th overall by the Houston Texans.

"I definitely feel he's been given a fair shot, I don't think there's any question about that".

So at the end of the day, it is what it is.

"He was (fair)", Finebaum said about Swinney. He and Swinney squared off on New Year's Day in the College Football Playoff this year and in the national title game the previous two seasons. "You've got to make tough decisions".

He sat down and talked to the veteran and you could tell he didn't want to make that decision.
