Where this Favre is concerned, at least, there doesn't appear to be any waffling over the next stage of his career.
Mississippi State has announced that backup quarterback Dylan Favre, nephew of none other than Brett Favre, is transferring out of the program and will not be available for the team's Music City Bowl showdown with Wake Forest.
Though Favre saw extensive snaps against Arkansas in the Bulldogs' Nov. 19 defeat to the Razorbacks, his playing time otherwise had been sporadic -- he attempted just 10 passes in MSU's 11 other games -- and had already taken to Twitter after the LSU game to ask for "an opportunity." Favre also made a de facto announcement regarding his Bulldog future on the site this past Friday:
Favre would later confirm that he will be transferring to nearby Pearl River Community College.
“Dylan decided to transfer and we wish him the best,” said Bulldog head coach Dan Mullen. “He has our full support with everything. He did a great job for us during his time here.”
Favre was a Parade All-American as a high school senior in 2009, when he threw for 5,589 yards and 63 touchdowns. But his 5'10" frame helped limit his recruiting profile (relatively speaking) and Mullen was the only SEC coach to make him an offer. Where Favre might look to transfer after his year at PRCC is yet to be determined.
"Hopefully, some (college) coaches will like my talents like coach Dan Mullen did," Favre said.
