Vad Lee Leaving Georgia Tech
By Eric Russell
Georgia Tech starting quarterback Vad Lee will be transferring, according to several media outlets. Lee, a redshirt sophomore, will have two years of eligibility wherever he lands.
Lee led the Yellow Jackets to a 7-6 record and a 5-3 mark in the ACC. Georgia Tech had a disappointing end to the season with a 25-17 loss to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl on Monday.
Jacketsonline.com first reported the news of Lee's decision. Shortly after the news broke, ESPN's Joe Schad tweeted that Lee wasn't a big fan of the triple-option offense Georgia Tech uses. Lee completed 82 of 180 passes on the season for 1,561 yards, 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also ran for 513 yards and eight touchdowns on just 2.8 yards per carry.
The North Carolina native chose the Yellow Jackets over the likes of North Carolina and N.C. State coming out of high school in 2011, but hasn't quite been what some had expected so far.
It will be back to the drawing board again for Paul Johnson, who will enter another season with a new starter.
