Former Tennessee and Houston quarterback Quinten Dormady is transferring to Central Michigan, he announced today on Twitter. Dormady appeared in only one game at Houston, attempting five passes, and redshirted the season after transferring from Tennessee in April. He started the first five games for Tennessee in 2017 before being replaced by Jarrett Guarantano. Dormady said he's 100 percent healthy and will have one year of eligibility for new CMU coach Jim McElwain in 2019.
