Stanford QB Nottingham To Transfer

STANFORD (CBS/AP) — Stanford football coach David Shaw has announced that junior quarterback Brett Nottingham plans to transfer.

Shaw said during practice Saturday that Nottingham would be leaving the eighth-ranked Cardinal (11-2), who won the Pac-12 title and will play Big Ten champion Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.

Nottingham was a highly touted recruit who was the primary backup last season to Andrew Luck, this year’s No. 1 pick in the NFL draft who is now playing for the Indianapolis Colts. Nottingham was beaten out for the starting job during preseason practice by Josh Nunes.

In two games this season, he completed 5 of 8 passes for 22 yards. He played in six games during 2011 and completed 5 of 8 passes for 78 yards and a touchdown. He was among the top quarterback prospects in the nation out of Monte Vista High School in nearby Danville.
