QB lost his job after broken wrist
SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah junior quarterback Brett Elliott may be headed out of Utah after losing his starting job.
Elliott told The Salt Lake Tribune for a story Tuesday that he will likely transfer to Linfield College. He lost the Utes starting job to Alex Smith this year after Elliott broke his wrist during the second game of the year.
While Elliott was out, Smith emerged as a star for the Utes and will start when the Utes play in the Liberty Bowl against Southern Mississippi.
``It's hard, because I have nothing bad to say about the Utah program,'' Elliott said. ``It's just kind of bad circumstances, bad luck, and I just wanted to play and get back on the field and have fun. I love Alex and I love all the coaches. I'm just kind of frustrated it didn't work out.''
Elliott said he's looking at Division III Linfield, near his home in Oregon.
