“I’m excited about him joining our program and competing at the quarterback position.” Louisville coach Scott Satterfield said in a release.
McCaffrey primarily served as Nebraska’s backup quarterback last season. He was more effective as a rusher than a passer — totaling 354 yards and three touchdowns on 56 carries.
As a passer, he averaged just 6.1 yards per attempt and had a 1:6 TD:INT ratio.
McCaffrey is likely to be Louisville’s backup in 2021. Cardinals starting quarterback Malik Cunningham is returning after a breakout season through the air and with his legs. His quarterback efficiency rating was 150.3 and he also rushed for 609 yards.
McCaffrey’s brother, Dylan, also transferred from a Big Ten school this offseason. Dylan left Michigan to join his father, Ed, at the University of Northern Colorado.
