It's a good thing Marcus Mariota decided to return to Oregon for another season, or the Ducks might find themselves without a quarterback this fall.

A report from Duck Territory states that quarterback Damion Hobbs will not return to the team this fall, and will instead transfer. Hobbs was a three-star member of Oregon's 2013 recruiting class, and he redshirted in 2013, but his loss leaves Oregon thin at its most important position on offense.

After all, Hobbs isn't the first Ducks quarterback to transfer this offseason. Earlier this week it was backup quarterback Jake Rodrigues announcing his intent to transfer after competing with Jeff Lockie this spring to be Mariota's backup. While Oregon didn't announce who was winning that competition, it's fairly obvious how Rodrigues felt things had gone.

So with the loss of both Rodrigues and Hobbs it leaves the Ducks with Mariota as starter and the redshirt sophomore Lockie as his backup. Behind them are redshirt freshman walk-on Taylor Alie and incoming freshman Morgan Mahalak.
