Penn State nixes Bolden’s transfer request
Question of the Day
Robert Bolden, Sr., said he wasn’t expecting Paterno to turn down the quarterback after a meeting Tuesday in State College. It’s unclear what Bolden will do next, with spring semester classes starting Monday.
Bolden was the first true freshman to open the season at quarterback in Paterno’s 45-year head-coaching tenure. He started eight games, but suffered a concussion vs. Minnesota. He then lost the job two weeks later to sophomore Matt McGloin after getting pulled vs. Northwestern.
Bolden, Sr., said his son was only interested in playing at the FBS level.
THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) _ Penn State quarterback Rob Bolden could seek a transfer following a freshman year in which he started the first half of the season before being benched for sophomore Matt McGloin.
Bolden’s mother, Tonia Williams, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Bolden and his father were traveling to Happy Valley to speak with the coaching staff. The school is on break, and players could go home after last week’s 37-24 loss to Florida in the Outback Bowl.
“It’s his decision. I had to stand by his decision,” she said from her Detroit-area home. “I’m hoping he’ll have a change of heart.”
The quarterback’s father, Robert Bolden, Sr., was quoted Sunday as saying his son intended to transfer.
It has been an eventful year at quarterback for the Nittany Lions (7-6).
Bolden started the next week against Northwestern but was pulled after fumbling the ball away on a sack on his second series. McGloin came off the bench to help spark the come-from-behind victory for Paterno’s 400th career win.
