Mean Green losing QB to Transfer

The North Texas Mean Green have just gotten some news they would have rather not gotten. It was announced late Monday night that part-time starter Dajon Williams will be leaving the team with hopes to transfer and play football elsewhere.

The decision was rather surprising to the team as Williams gave no indication as to why he would be transferring.

According to College Football Talk, Mean Green head coach Dan McCarney told the Denton Chronicle that Williams would be leaving the team. He also mentioned that Williams gave no reason as to why he would be leaving.

McCarney said in a short and simple quote: “Dajon is no longer a part of the program. We wish him the best.”

Williams started three of the eight games that he played in last season and was the regular starter for the first part of the season. He was replaced by Andrew McNully after accounting for five turnovers in a 35-7 loss to UAB. He never regained the starting position.

In 2014, Williams did have some bright spots though. He helped lead the Mean Green to a Conference USA scoring record in a 77-7 win over FCS opponent Nicholls State. The redshirt freshman got his first career start in the game and threw for 176 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for sixty-eight yards and two touchdowns in the game.

Williams won’t be a huge name in a big power conference, but whatever team lands the former two-star quarterback will be happy to know that they have a quarterback who can be a leader. Best of luck Dajon.
