University of Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema didn’t close the door on Joe Brennan remaining with the team this season, but the sophomore quarterback wasn’t at the team’s media day on Sunday as he explores other options for his future.
Brennan is fourth on the depth chart behind the three players competing for the starting job: junior transfer Danny O’Brien, senior Curt Phillips and redshirt freshman Joel Stave.
“He’s looking into some options outside of the University of Wisconsin to possibly transfer to,” Bielema said of Brennan, who was 6-for-14 for 48 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in six games last season. “I’m trying to facilitate that as best I can for Joey.
“I’m not for sure that’s going to happen. I’ve allowed him to take some time away from the program here, explore his options and get a feel for where he’s at and would welcome him back if that’s kind of the direction he wants to go.”
