RALEIGH, NC - NC State head football coach Dave Doeren has announced that senior quarterback Pete Thomas has decided to transfer following his graduation in May. Thomas started six games for the Wolfpack last season.
"Pete has been a great teammate and a very positive representative of NC State Athletics,” said Doeren. “I have really enjoyed coaching him and want him to be successful as a player and in life. Going forward I will do anything I can to help him through his transition as a transfer. He will be missed as a teammate, player and person in our locker room."
Thomas, a communication major, played in nine contests, including six starts, for the Wolfpack in 2013. He finished the season ranked ninth in the ACC in passing yardage per game with a 185.2 mark and in total offense with 203.3 yards per game.
A native of El Cajon, California, Thomas started 21 games at Colorado State from 2010-11 before transferring to NC State
“I want to thank Coach Doeren, my teammates and all the fans,” said Thomas. “I have great respect for this staff and I believe they will turn this program around. I’m proud that I will earn my degree from such a great university.”
