McCaffrey’s father, Ed, is the head coach at Northern Colorado. He’s also a Stanford alum and had a 13-year career in the NFL.
McCaffrey announced his intention to transfer from Michigan earlier this month. He’s a former 4-star prospect, but did not see the field for the Wolverines in 2020. In his career with Michigan, he completed 18-of-35 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns.
His brother, Luke, is also currently in the transfer portal. Luke spent the last two seasons at Nebraska, but struggled to maintain the starting quarterback position. He has not yet announced where he’ll play next season.
Due to the pandemic, Northern Colorado — and most of the rest of FCS — did not play a season this fall. Instead, the FCS is planning on holding a season this spring.
