Barrett Trotter began the season as Auburn’s starting quarterback. By mid-October he’d been replaced by Clint Moseley and Kiehl Frazier. After sitting for five games, Trotter came off the bench to help lead the Tigers past Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
Now he’s walking away from the see-saw and will forgo his senior year of football. Trotter graduated last August and is currently enrolled in graduate school on the Plains.
“My four years at Auburn has been a great experience and I’m thankful for the opportunities that I’ve had. I’m truly blessed to have been a part of winning seasons and championships during my time at Auburn.
I’m also very appreciative of Coach (Gene) Chizik and the coaching staff, as well as my teammates and the entire Auburn family.”
Trotter said the he will not transfer to another program. He can take part in Auburn’s pro day if he wants to pursue an NFL career, though it’s unlikely he’ll get a look in the pros. For his career, Trotter passed for 1,248 yard and 11 touchdowns.
Chizik and the person he hires as offensive coordinator will have Moseley, Frazier and highly-touted incoming freshman Zeke Pike to choose from when it comes to Auburn’s quarterback position in 2012.
