Former Michigan quarterback Dylan McCaffrey moves to Northern Colorado where he has the chance to play for his father Ed McCaffrey.
Dylan was an ESPN 300 recruit in the 2017 class but was never able to win the starting job in Michigan. He tried only 15 passes in 2018 and suffered a broken collarbone that shortened his season. He was a backup for Shea Patterson in 2019.
McCaffrey could not start his career in Michigan and left the 2020 season before it began.
The elder McCaffrey became the Bears head coach in December 2019 but has yet to train one game for Northern Colorado as Big Sky postponed its season to spring due to COVID-19.
Northern Colorado recently announced that it would not be participating in the Big Sky’s spring and championship seasons, but instead have a modified non-conference schedule in late spring.
Ed will add his son to the list with two years remaining. and because Dylan is a graduate transfer, he’s eligible to play instantly.
McCaffrey is brothers of former Nebraska quarterback Luke McCaffrey and Carolina Panthers star Christian McCaffrey.
Michigan still has quarterbacks Cade McNamara and Joe Milton on the list, and the staff also added ESPN 300 quarterback J.J. McCarthy in this 2021 class. McCarthy enrolled early in Michigan and was the No. 25 recruit overall and the No. 2 double threat quarterback in the class.
