Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Bennie Coney will transfer. Here is the breaking of the news from Tom Groeschen. #UC QB Bennie Coney is no longer with team and will transfer, #Bearcats coach Tommy Tuberville said — Tom Groeschen (@TomGroeschen) February 19, 2014 Not long after, we got word from Bennie Coney himself. I want to Thank the University of Cincinnati for being my home for 3 long years. I want to say Thank You to all the people that supported me — Bennie Coney (@bconey10) February 19, 2014 It's been an honor representing the "C" — Bennie Coney (@bconey10) February 19, 2014 This is not that last of me. Time was ticking, I'm hungry to b the starter in someone's program #3years left — Bennie Coney (@bconey10) February 19, 2014 It would have been great if things worked out for Coney at Cincinnati since he has a lot of promise and potential, but I guess they just weren't. Coney played in 3 games this year. He was 6-7 for 84 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. He never had a pass hit the ground. Coney got credit for 2 runs for -9 yards. Gunner Kiel and Jarred Evans, along with the returning Munchie Legaux, figure to fight for the starting job. Best of luck to Bennie Coney. I'm sure wherever he goes,  he will get a chance to play well. Maybe he can win the Heisman for handoffs there.
