BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU announced Thursday that quarterback Anthony Jennings will be allowed to transfer another school to finish his college football career.

Jennings played for the Tigers for the past three years with a 9-4 record as starting quarterback. He is expected to remain at the university until he graduates in the summer.

Jennings first started for LSU in the Tigers' win over Iowa in the 2014 Outback Bowl. He then started every game as a sophomore except the Auburn game. 

"Anthony did a lot of really good things for our program," said head coach Les Miles. "As a freshman, he came in for an injured Zach Mettenberger and led us to a last-minute win over Arkansas and then he helped us to eight wins the following year as a sophomore.

"This is an opportunity for Anthony to put himself in a position to help another team have success. We wish him nothing but good fortune in the future and we appreciate all that he did while he was part of our program."

During his three years at LSU, Jennings played in 24 games with 13 starts. He completed 124 of 256 passes for 1,792 yards and 12 touchdowns. He added another 310 rushing yards and a touchdown.
