QB Nick Stephens to transfer from Tennessee

“Nick’s in his fifth year and of course has been trying to get on the field his whole career,” Dooley said. “(He) just felt like it was too risky to go through another season because he just wants to play. We hate to lose Nick, but I certainly understand.”
Stephens hasn’t determined where he will play but will go to either a Football Championship Subdivision school or one in a lower division so that he won’t lose his final year of eligibility.
