Dailey Transfers

By  | 

Joe Dailey, a one-time starting quarterback for Nebraska now at fourth-string has been given permission to look at transferring to another school.

That's according to Nebraska Head Football Coach Bill Callahan Monday.

Callahan said in a news release that he was disappointed in Dailey's decision to leave but wished him luck.

Callahan said he and other coaches met with the junior from Jersey City, New Jersey today, telling Dailey that it was not yet decided who would be the starting quarterback next season.

Dailey was also a team captain last season, his first with Nebraska. He went into Saturday's Red-White Game as the fourth-string quarterback behind Zac Taylor, Beau Davis and Joe Ganz.

He was seven-of-20 for 121 yards, with one interception returned for a touchdown in the annual game.

After the game, he told reporters he was hampered this spring by a shoulder joint sprain and that the injury may have played a role in his demotion.

Dailey started all eleven games at quarterback as a sophomore in 2004.
