Penn State QB Tyler Ferguson Transferring To Louisville

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Former Penn State quarterback Tyler Ferguson is transferring to Louisville, where he plans to compete for the starting job in two seasons.

Ferguson had initially planned to transfer to Western Kentucky, but made the easy decision to follow Bobby Petrino to U of L after this week's events.

"After he got the job at Louisville, he called me very shortly after that," Ferguson told ESPN.com. "So, yeah, I'm going out there to Louisville now. [Petrino] was the first to reach out to me when I got my release from Penn State. He said if he got the Louisville job, he still wanted to get me."

Ferguson, who spent the 2013 season as Penn State's backup quarterback, plans to be on Louisville's campus by Sunday and start classes Monday. He saw action in five games this season, completing 10-of-15 passes for 155 yards and one touchdown with no interceptions.

Ferguson will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2014 season per NCAA transfer rules.
