Myles Brennan transferring from LSU after adverse career as a Tiger

Geaux Nation

BATON ROUGE, La. – October 10, 2020. LSU quarterback Myles Brennan threw 430 passing yards and four touchdowns, on 29-of-48 passing. The Tigers lost to Mizzou 45-41, and the week three upset was the last game Brennan played the remainder of the season. Now, the senior has entered the NCAA transfer portal, marking the four-point loss as his final game in purple and gold.

“He was teary-eyed. It was a tough decision for him. He thought that he just needed to find a place that he felt that he can go play for one year and start. I told him, I said “listen, hey, you gave all you can to LSU. You graduated from LSU,” and I wish him the best,” head coach Ed Orgeron said.

Brennan’s transfer became the latest chapter of adversity the Mississippi native has faced while in the Red Stick.

After spending his first three years on campus as backup to Danny Etling and Joe Borrow, Brennan officially took the reigns of the offense in 2020, but a season-ending abdomen injury took away his first year as undisputed QB1. Now with minimal eligibility left, Myles will try to repeat what his Heisman trophy counterpart did in 2018, and Coach O supports his QB wherever he goes.

“I gotta give it to Myles and his family. He remained patient. He waited his turn, and I thought he played very good last year, the beginning of the year, and things happened that way to where he thought that he had to move on and take a shot at another place. Joe Burrow did the same thing. It worked out for him. I hope the same thing works out for Myles. He wants to play pro ball. I hope he gets that shot.,” Orgeron said.
