The Oregon Ducks have taken a few hits on the defensive side of the ball this offseason, including offensive coordinator Scott Frost leaving for Central Florida. Now, they have taken another hit when junior cornerback Chris Seisay decided to leave the program.
247Sports reported that Seisay was no longer on the team as it looks like he will transfer and look to continue his career elsewhere. The reason behind this is likely because he has fallen behind sophomore Ugo Amadi and redshirt freshman Malik Lovette on the depth chart.
“Right now, when he plays well, he’s one of those guys, is he going to start, I don’t know,” defensive back coach John Neal said earlier this week. “He just needs to be consistent, do what he can do.”
Chris Seisay took a redshirt in 2013 and then became the team’s top corner off the bench in 2014 before assuming a starting role for the Rose Bowl and national title game. He played in a total of 18 games in his first two seasons with the team and racked up 55 tackles, six pass deflections, one interception and one forced fumble.
