Former Auburn QB Cord Sandberg announces transfer destination
Just under two months removed from entering his name into the NCAA transfer portal, Cord Sandberg has found a new home.
The former Auburn quarterback announced on Thursday that he will continue his college playing career at Eastern Kentucky.
In three seasons at Auburn, Sandberg completed seven of nine pass attempts for 114 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also added 70 rushing yards for the Tigers.
Sandberg’s journey to Eastern Kentucky has been an interesting one as he landed at Auburn back in 2018 after spending six seasons in minor league baseball, where he played for the Philadelphia Phillies organization.
Following Gus Malzahn’s dismissal at Auburn and Bryan Harsin’s hire, Sandbert left the Tigers to finish his college career elsewhere. Now he’s off to join (former Tennessee offensive line coach) Walt Wells’ EKU program.
