Bowling Green QB Jarret Doege has entered the transfer portal, per Chris Hummer of 247Sports.

Doege started 17 games in two seasons at Bowling Green, compiling 4,041 passing yards, 39 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions on a 62.7% completion rate. As a true freshman, Doege took the starting job from James Morgan, who transferred to FIU and served as the Panthers’ starter for the 2018 season. In a successful sophomore year, Doege started all 12 games for the Falcons and tied for 18th in the FBS with 27 touchdown passes.

He committed to Bowling Green in March 2016 when the Falcons were under the reign of head coach Mike Jinks. Jinks was fired on October 14 after posting a 7-24 record in 2.5 seasons with the Falcons. Doege’s brother Seth, a former All-Big 12 Texas Tech quarterback, was also a part of Jinks’ staff from 2016-18 where he operated as a graduate assistant, wide receivers coach, and special teams coordinator. Seth has since taken a job at Jinks’ new school, USC, as an offensive quality control analyst.

Jarret Doege, a Lubbock, TX native, is entering his true junior season in 2019. If he remained on campus, he would have been the de facto starter under new Bowling Green head coach Scot Loeffler. In all likelihood, he will have to sit out a season if he finalizes a transfer.

Bowling Green’s new starter is projected to be redshirt junior Grant Loy. Loy saw action in nine of 12 games last season, passing for 180 yards and two touchdowns on just 12 attempts. He’s shown more mobility than Doege, and attained 160 rushing yards on 16 carries in 2018.

The Loeffler era at Bowling Green begins August 29 when Morgan State visits town. Bowling Green has its sights set on its first winning season since 2015, when it won its second MAC Championship in three years.

Update (05/16/19):

Jarret Doege revealed his landing destination to be West Virginia in a tweet posted May 16. He will be eligible to start for the Mountaineers in the 2020 season unless he is granted a waiver for immediate eligibility.
