UNC's Paulus To Transfer

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina backup quarterback Mike Paulus says he plans to transfer to William & Mary.

Tar Heels coach Butch Davis said Friday that Paulus asked to be released from his scholarship a few weeks ago in search of more playing time. The sophomore says he will not travel with North Carolina to Charlotte for the Meineke Bowl against No. 17 Pittsburgh.

Paulus was a heralded member of Davis' first recruiting class in 2007. He spent the past three years as a backup to T.J. Yates, but hasn't played in a game since 2008 and saw action in only four games during his career. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

He is the younger brother of former Duke point guard and Syracuse quarterback Greg Paulus.
