Matt Weiss is heaping some high praise on one of his former players. The Michigan QBs coach complimented quarterback Cade McNamara for his time with the Wolverines.

McNamara helped Michigan go 12-2 and win the B1G Championship for a berth in the College Football Playoff. He completed just over 64% of his passes for 2,576 yards and 15 touchdowns to 6 interceptions.

“I would say with Cade: I mean, the guy’s (a) Michigan legend,” said Weiss. “And I don’t say that lightly. He’s 12-2 as a starter here. He’s in the top-10 in every single-season quarterback record. He was voted All-B1G by the coaches, voted team captain by his players. Won the B1G, beat Ohio State. So he’s a Michigan legend, and we’re really grateful to Cade for everything he did here…

“He’s a great player. He’s got a great future ahead of him. Everyone here is indebted to him for last season and for everything else he helped us do to build to ’22.”

With the emergence of J.J. McCarthy, McNamara decided to put his name in the transfer portal. He now hits the open market as a graduate transfer. McNamara originally committed to Notre Dame before flipping to Michigan.

Though McCarthy was undoubtedly the right choice for the Wolverines moving forward, McNamara helped elevate the program and laid the ground work for an impressive run in Ann Arbor.
