Washington Husky senior defensive end Josh Shirley has left the football team and will play elsewhere. Offensive lineman Taylor Hindy is also leaving the Dawgs. The university released a one sentence statement regarding the moves earlier today.

“Defensive end Josh Shirley and offensive lineman Taylor Hindy have left the University of Washington football program and will transfer to other programs, Huskies head coach Chris Petersen announced today.”

The Seattle Times is reporting that Shirley would like to play his senior season closer to his native Southern California.

Shirley registered 3 sacks and 13 tackles last season in his back-up role as a pass-rushing specialist for the Huskies.
