With the hiring of head coach Mark Richt Miami is heading in a new direction. However, it will be doing it without offensive lineman Joe Brown.

The 6-4, 322-pound redshirt sophomore decided to transfer from the Hurricanes this week.

Per NBC Sports:

“The University of Miami is a great place and I will be forever thankful for the opportunity this institution gave me,” Brown said. “However at this point in my collegiate career, I believe this is the best move for my future.”

Richt said he wishes the best for Brown, who made his first career start in 2015 against Virginia Tech and played in seven games this season.

Per NBC Sports:

“Joe has been a well respected member of our football program and I would like to thank him for his hard work during his time at Miami“ said Richt. “I respect his desire to be closer to home and I wish him nothing but success. I believe Joe has a bright future ahead of him.”
