Former starter Ozzie Mann transferring from Ball State

The Boise State Cardinals are going to be losing a quarterback to transfer.

Late Monday, it was announced that Ozzie Mann, who began last season as the team’s starting quarterback, will be transferring from Ball State. There is no word on where Mann will land.

“We want to thank Ozzie for his hard work and for representing our program in a first class manner,” head coach Pete Lembo said in a statement. “Depth chart decisions are never easy, but they need to be made. Ozzie has our full support and we will do whatever we can to help him with this next step in his career.”

If Mann decides to transfer to another FBS school, NCAA transfer rules will force him to sit out the 2015 season.

Last season, Mann recorded 1,281 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions. Mann played in seven games in 2014, starting six, before losing the starting job to Jack Miles, who also beat Mann out for the starting gig during the spring.

Mann, a redshirt junior, will have two years of eligibility left.
