Cincy QB Anderson transfers to Buffalo

Cincinnati quarterback Chazz Anderson is transferring to play his final year at the University at Buffalo, where he’ll be reunited with coach Jeff Quinn.

Anderson has one year of eligibility left and will be allowed to step in immediately this season after graduating from Cincinnati in May. That’s big news for Quinn, who is seeking an experienced quarterback to run his spread offense entering his second season in Buffalo.

Quinn coached Anderson from 2007-09, when he served as the Bearcats offensive coordinator.

Anderson has served mostly as a backup to Tony Pike and Zach Collaros in three seasons at Cincinnati. His best season came in 2008, when he went 46 of 75 for 520 yards in two victories, helping the Bearcats win the Big East title.
