Former Indiana QB Cameron Coffman transferring to Wyoming


Craig Bohl may have found his man.

Former Indiana quarterback Cameron Coffman confirmed to the Star-Tribune Friday morning that he will transfer to Wyoming. He previously announced the transfer on his Twitter account.

"Excited to announce that I will be going to Wyoming. Blessed to have another opportunity," Coffman tweeted.

Coffman -- a 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior from Peculiar, Missouri -- played scarcely last season in a back-up role, completing 2 of 9 passes for 29 yards and an interception. He lost the starting gig after starring as a sophomore in 2012, throwing for 2,734 yards -- second in the Big Ten -- with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

He may be a talented passer, but Coffman is not a dual-threat quarterback. He was sacked 13 times in 2012 and ran for a total of -1 yards and one touchdown.

Prior to his transfer to Indiana, Coffman played at Arizona Western Community College in Yuma, Arizona, in 2011. He threw for 2,244 yards with 21 touchdowns and six interceptions and completed 61.4 percent of his passes, leading Arizona Western to its first 11-win season in program history. He also guided his team to the National Junior College Athletic Association national championship game, where he threw for 291 yards and four touchdowns.

Rivals rated Coffman as a three-star recruit following his stint at Arizona Western.

Wyoming also has a connection to Arizona Western CC, as sophomore tight end Jacob Hollister played there last season.

If Coffman's last name is familiar, that's because he's a member of both a football family and a Wyoming family. His father, Paul Coffman, played tight end at Kansas State before going on to a 10-year NFL career with the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs. His brother, Chase, played tight end at Missouri and is currently a member of the Atlanta Falcons. His brother, Carson, also played quarterback at Kansas State.

Coffman's sister, Camille Coffman, played volleyball at Wyoming from 2009 to 2012.

Wyoming has yet to confirm Coffman's transfer. If he winds up in Laramie, the will-be senior will sit out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He has one season of eligibility remaining and also has a redshirt available.
