Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns head football coach Mark Hudspeth announced on Friday that quarterback Brooks Haack will transfer from the program.

Head Coach Mark Hudspeth issued this statement, "Brooks has been an integral part of our program for the past four years and is on pace to graduate from the University,” Hudspeth said. “We thank him for all that he has done for our program and we wish the best in his future endeavors."
Here is the statement from Brooks Haack on Twitter. After saying Thank you to Lafayette, he wrote:
"I just wanted to thank everything and everyone who supported me the last four years and it's sad that it had to come to an end...I wish it would have worked out but God has a plan for everyone and it's our duty to fulfill that plan...I love Lafayette like a second home and will definitely not be a stranger...Thank you for the great memories.."
He added on a Bible phrase, Isaiah 40:31, "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."
A native of Katy, Texas, Haack appeared in 21 games for Louisiana during his career, completing 164-of-259 passes for 1,810 yards and 8 touchdowns, while rushing for another 91 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Haack served as the backup to Terrance Broadway in 2013 and 2014, with his most extensive playing time coming against Louisiana Tech in September of 2014, when he completed 10-of-13 passes for 87 yards and a touchdown, before leading the team in passing completions and yards in 2015.
