Maty Mauk’s career at Missouri certainly did not end the way he would have hoped it to. He was dismissed from the team in January after multiple cases of his conduct being detrimental to the team with the last straw being a video of him snorting a substance jumping around Twitter.
It looks like the former SEC quarterback has found his next stop on his college football journey. He recently posted a picture of him in his Missouri graduation robes on Instagram and said that he was ready for the next chapter in his life.
Officially done in Columbia and ready to start the next chapter.… https://t.co/2Rgp9s43bV

However, the most interesting tidbit to take away from his recent changes on social media is that he has added “EKU” to his Twitter bio. This might be a hint that he will transfer to Eastern Kentucky for his final season of eligibility.
Since the Colonels play in the FCS, he would be able to play immediately in the 2016 season. His transfer to Eastern Kentucky might be reminiscent of another former Power 5 player that had troubles with drugs.
Noah Spence was dismissed from Ohio State before the 2015 season and he played one year with the Colonels before taking off to the NFL and being a second-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft in April.
For Maty Mauk, he could end up being the starter for the Colonels. Despite his off-field troubles, he was a pretty decent quarterback for the Tigers, throwing for 4,373 yards and 42 touchdowns against just 19 interceptions in two and a half seasons as he played in just four games last year.
