In surprising news on Wednesday, Auburn backup QB Joey Gatewood decided to transfer from the Tiger program.

Gatewood had been used sparingly through the first portion of the season, getting in usually only to run the ball.

After the news broke of his impending transfer, Gatewood took to Twitter to wish his former teammates well moving forward:

Where Gatewood ends up next remains to be seen, but he’s sure to be a hot commodity on the market this upcoming offseason.

Now, Auburn will have true freshman Bo Nix continue to be the starter, but he won’t have Gatewood behind him or entering the game in goal line situations.
