Former West Virginia quarterback Jarret Doege has found a new home to finish out his college career and it will be at Western Kentucky University.
Doege made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday morning.
Doege entered the transfer portal after WVU’s bowl game loss to Minnesota.
At the time, Doege wrote, “I will forever be grateful for the friendships and memories I’ve made at WVU over the past three years,” Doege writes. “Thank you to the coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to live out a lifelong dream of mine. West Virginia will always have a special place in my heart. I am excited about the future and will be looking for a new home for the 2022 season.”
Jarret Doege actually ranks fifth in career passing yards (6,453) and 10th in career passing touchdowns (40) in West Virginia history. Perhaps what Doege needs is a change of scenery, as he’s drawn the ire of many Mountaineers fans over the last two seasons. Doege came on strong at the end of the 2019 season, but never built on those expectations in 2020 or 2021.
Now at WVU, the 2022 starting quarterback job becomes one of the top position battles to watch, with many wanting to see highly-touted true freshman Nicco Marchiol. It will also be a fascinating year as the pressure is building on Neal Brown in Year 4 to break out of his mediocre streak after going 6-7 this season.
