MSU committed to Brian Lewerke, isn't seeking transfer QB

MSU committed to Brian Lewerke, isn't seeking transfer QB

While many Michigan State fans grew more and more disgruntled each week of the 2018 season as the offense continued to struggle, most of the frustration was directed at co-offensive coordinator Dave Warner.

However, as is the case with just about any offense that is having trouble putting points on the board, the SpartansA quarterback a€” Brian Lewerke a€” also took his share of heat.

How warranted it was is tough to determine considering the junior played the second half of the season with an injured right throwing shoulder and played most of the season behind a banged up offensive line as playmakers like running back LJ Scott and startingA wide receivers Felton Davis, Cody White and Darrell Stewart Jr. were hampered by injuries.

And while Dantonio decided to shake up his offensive staff and move quarterbacks coach Brad Salem to offensive coordinator and running backs coach, he has no intentions of making any significant moves when it comes to his quarterback, even as accomplished quarterbacks like Alabamaa€™s Jalen Hurts are seeking a transfer.

a€œI don't anticipate doing that right now. I don't want to do that,a€ Dantonio said of bringing in a transfer quarterback. a€œThat's not the way that we're going to go. As I said, the easy thing, guys, is to say, a€˜Hey, we've got a great defense; let's get rid of the offensive guys. Let's shake the quarterback out over here. Put a little pixie dust right here and everything's going to be OK.a€™

a€œThat's not necessarily the situation. Brian Lewerke I think understands our terminology. He's been successful here in the past. I think he can be successful and I have faith in that. And so I put my faith in the people that I know and that's the direction we're going to go.a€

Most of Lewerkea€™s success came in 2017 when he threw 20 touchdown passes and gained 3,352 total yards, the second-most in program history. It helped the Spartans bounce back from three wins in 2016 to 10 in 2017, capped with a victory over Washington State in the Holiday Bowl.
