Matt Mosley was absent from Wednesday’s practice, and he will be absent from the rest of them. The junior cornerback from Chandler, Ariz., has left the team with the intention to transfer.
“He’s graduating in winter and wants an opportunity to go someplace else and play,” head coach Steve Sarkisian said. “That’s ok.”
In 2008, Mosley played in 10 of the 12 games, and even started three games at corner. Had 15 tackles, two tackles for loss and a forced fumble. In 2007, as a redshirt freshman, Mosley played in 11 games and also got three starts, totaling 12 tackles.
This season, he fell out of favor with the coaching staff and below freshman Desmond Trufant on the depth chart.
Sarkisian mentioned earlier this season some issues with Mosley’s attitude off the field, but would not elaborate.
Because Mosley will graduate, by NCAA rules, he’ll be able to transfer to any school in the FBS and not have to sit out a year.
Sarkisian said he had no idea where Mosley plans to transfer to, saying he would find out when he received the scholarship release form.
