MISSOULA – Big news was announced out of the University of Montana on Monday, as sophomore quarterback Gresch Jensen announced his intention to transfer before the beginning of the 2018 season. Jensen took over the starting job in 2017 after Reese Phillips went down with a season-ending leg injury.
The then-redshirt freshman finished the season racking up more 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns, one of the best freshman campaigns in all of college football last year. The decision to transfer follows a quarterback competition with UNLV transfer Dalton Sneed, who is now the presumed starting QB.
Head coach Bobby Hauck released a statement thanking Jensen for his hard work and wished him the best.
“We think Gresch is a great guy, and hope good things happen for him. We appreciate his efforts at Montana, and we will help him any way we can in the future,” said Hauck.
Jensen has not yet announced which school he will be transferring to.
