Former Missouri quarterback Maty Mauk has found a new home for his final collegiate season, deciding to transfer to Eastern Kentucky.
The Ohio native had a tumultuous career with the Tigers, as he was suspended three times in his junior season before eventually being dismissed by new coach Barry Odom in January. Eastern Kentucky confirmed Friday to Dave Matter of the St. Louis Dispatch that he has signed a financial aid agreement with the school.
Despite his struggles off the field, Mauk posted a 17-5 record as a starter with Missouri, throwing for 4,373 yards and 42 touchdowns.
Mauk graduated from the school following the spring semester, and will be a graduate student at Eastern Kentucky. Usually he would need that distinction to be eligible immediately, but since the Colonels are an FCS program, he’s able to play the 2016 season regardless.
