Pigrome appeared in several games throughout his career with the Terrapins and made seven starts over the last four seasons. He spent most of his time in College Park as a backup, but was pushed into the spotlight due to injuries and poor play. He brought a strong dual-threat ability to the field for Maryland.
Last season, Pigrome lost the starting job to Virginia Tech transfer Josh Jackson and was likely going to be in a similar situation during the 2020 season with the Terps. Even though he was primarily a backup, Pigrome threw for 718 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions while also rushing for 153 yards and two scores.
Pigrome leaves College Park having thrown for 1,777 yards and nine touchdowns and rushing for 630 more yards and eight scores.
Western Kentucky finished the 2019 season with a 9-4 record.
