Utah State quarterback Jason Shelley is out after simply 4 video games into his profession with the Aggies.

Utah State interim coach Frank Maile introduced on Sunday night time that Shelley had been dismissed from the crew for “a violation of crew guidelines.” He didn’t specify what guidelines Shelley violated and the college stated in a press launch that Maile “is not going to touch upon this matter transferring ahead.”

Shelley, who transferred in from Utah this fall, went 51-of-99 for 420 yards by way of the air of their first 4 video games. He threw two touchdowns and had two interceptions because the Aggies received off to a tough 0-4 begin. The junior appeared in 18 video games for Utah over two seasons, racking up greater than 1,200 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Shelley went 9-of-24 for 144 yards in USU’s 35-16 loss to Fresno State on Saturday, and was sacked six instances.

It’s unclear who will take over for Utah State for his or her recreation in opposition to Wyoming on Thursday night time. Backup Andrew Peasley was unavailable for Saturday’s loss to Fresno State for an unknown purpose, which leaves freshman Cooper Legas because the presumed subsequent man up.

Legas has but to play a snap on the collegiate degree.

Shelley’s dismissal is the most recent concern for Utah State up to now this season. This system fired coach Gary Andersen final week after three video games. Andersen was in his second yr of his second stint main this system after spending 4 years teaching the Aggies from 2009-2012.
