Pitt redshirt junior quarterback Chad Voytik will pursue a graduate transfer after receiving his degree at the end of the spring semester, coach Pat Narduzzi announced Monday.
“I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to attend and play for the University of Pittsburgh,” Voytik said via a release.
In a backup role for most of the season, Voytik passed for 112 yards with one touchdown and one interception this past season, in addition to rushing for 40 yards and a score. In the 2014 season, he passed for 2,233 yards with 19 total touchdowns.
“Chad has been a tremendous leader and teammate during his Pitt career, and certainly during the year I had the opportunity to coach him,” Narduzzi said. “We wish him the very best and will help him any way we can as he maps out his future pursuits. We will always consider him a Pitt Man. His contributions have been invaluable to what we are building here.”
The release did not state where Voytik would transfer for his graduate season.
“I am blessed to have met some amazing people along the way: teammates that I’ll always be friends with, coaches that made me a better player and person, and fans that offered a tremendous amount of support,” Voytik said. “Pittsburgh will always be my second home.”
