Backup QB Sheahin leaves Terps

SPORTS DIGEST

August 13, 2007|By HEATHER A. DINICH

Maryland backup quarterback Bobby Sheahin quit the team Saturday and transferred to Salisbury University yesterday, his father, Bob, said.

Sheahin, a walk-on who transferred from West Virginia, was listed as the Terps' fourth-string quarterback, and told Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen on Saturday that he wanted to leave the program.

"He wanted to go somewhere he knew he was going to play," Bob Sheahin said. "They went from a position where they had no quarterbacks to now they have a slew."

Bob Sheahin said his son's decision had nothing to do with the coaching staff or program.

Bobby Sheahin's brother, Chris, a freshman receiver at Maryland who transferred from Navy, also might leave because of his brother's decision.
