Baty to leave Kansas football

Kansas head football coach Charlie Weis announced Saturday that sophomore quarterback Turner Baty will leave the football program to return to his previous school, City College of San Francisco. Baty did not play during the 2012 season.

“With Jake Heaps and Michael Cummings both competing for time at the quarterback position, I have decided it would be in my best interest to go back to City College of San Francisco and get some game experience,” Baty said. “I have not ruled out the idea of returning to Kansas after getting a season of play under my belt. I love it here. I love the university and my teammates and I want to thank everyone in the Jayhawk community for their support.”

Baty, who has three years of eligibility remaining, arrived at Kansas in time for the 2012 season after transferring from CCSF in 2011.

“We would like to thank Turner for his participation in our program this year,” Weis said. “We wish him well upon his return to junior college. After meeting today we agreed that a return to KU is a possibility.”
