This not too uncommon for a team to lose players within a year or so of a coaching change, but things are starting to get a bit ridiculous for Miami.
On Wednesday, Miami released this statement, saying that defensive back Terrance Henley would be leaving the program.
The University of Miami announced Wednesday that defensive back Terrance Henley has decided to leave the football program.
“I talked to Terrance and he felt like he would have more opportunities for playing time at another program,” head coach Mark Richt said. “We wish him all the best in his future plans.”
Henley, a junior, played in three games last season and he recording just one tackle as a reserve. Henley was a former two-star recruit, and it is possible that he will transfer to the FCS so he doesn’t lose a year of eligibility.
Henley is the seventh player that Miami has lost this offseason to transfer: quarterback Jack Allison, tight end Jovani Haskins, offensive lineman Sunny Odogwu, running back Tyson Dye, running back Gus Edwards, and defensive back Jeff James. Miami also lost defensive back Cedrick Wright after he was dismissed following a suspension.
