Ex-Nebraska QB Luke McCaffrey leaves Louisville

Just a few months after transferring from Nebraska, quarterback Luke McCaffrey is no longer on the Louisville roster.

Cardinals head coach Scott Satterfield revealed the news Wednesday morning on ESPN Radio 93.9 The Ville.

“Luke came in last week and decided that this wasn’t the place for him,” Satterfield said. “He wanted to come in and be a starting quarterback. … We wish him the best.”

McCaffrey, the younger brother of Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaffrey, announced that he was leaving the Cornhuskers for Louisville in late February.

As a redshirt freshman in 2020, he played in seven games with two starts for Nebraska. He completed 48 of 76 passes for 466 yards with one touchdown and six interceptions and rushed 65 times for 364 yards and three TDs.

McCaffrey was a four-star prospect in the Class of 2019 and was rated the No. 1 overall prospect in the state of Colorado by the 247Sports composite.
