Graduate Transfer Dormady Continues in Starting Role as CMU QB
MT. PLEASANT – With its season opener three weeks away, the Central Michigan football program is getting back to work.
First-year head coach Jim McElwain spoke to the media for the first time during fall practice on Wednesday and says that senior graduate transfer Quinten Dormady remains CMU’s starting quarterback.
After spending his first three collegiate seasons at Tennessee from 2015-17, Dormady transferred to Houston and redshirted in 2018. Dormady threw for 1,282 yards and seven touchdowns in his time at Tennessee.
“Probably one of the biggest things is experience,” McElwain said. “He’s been there. He’s played in big games. He understands the system, and yet the other guys are doing a good job, too. But, you know, he’s number one right now. It’s really a matter of being checks and balances, making sure that we’re getting the ball to play makers that need to get it, helping in protection, and solidifying personnel. That’s probably the biggest piece right there.”
CMU welcomes in Albany to Kelly/Shorts Stadium on Thursday, Aug. 29. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
