Tom Flacco, brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, has reportedly left the Western Michigan football program, according to Andy Pepper of WWMT-TV.
Have just learned that @WMU_Football QB Tom Flacco has left Broncos program. Still has redshirt, can transfer and play 2 yrs elsewhere— Andy Pepper (@APepperWWMT) July 19, 2017
There has been no announcement from Flacco or the school, but he is no longer listed on the Broncos roster. Per Pepper, the move is not linked to any off-field issues.
Flacco served as the backup for Zach Terrell the last two seasons, primarily as a garbage time or change of pace quarterback. Over his career, Flacco accumulated 10/13 for 188 yards for one touchdown by air and 38 rushes for 340 yards and two touchdowns.
Flacco, who stands at six-foot-one, 195 lb., was projected to fight for the starting quarterback position with Jon Wassink in Tim Lester’s first year at the helm of the Broncos.
Besides Wassink, there are four other quarterbacks listed on the WMU roster, including former University of Illinois QB Alex Mussat.
Flacco still has two years of eligibility left after his redshirt transfer year to the program he heads to next if the reports are correct. Flacco is a New Jersey native, so there is a possibilty he could move closer to home. Of course, there is also the potentiail he joins old coach PJ Fleck at Minnesota, as WMU was the only visit Flacco took as a recruit before committing.
Flacco has previously held offers from Temple, Coastal Carolina and Delaware.
