AUSTIN, Texas – Backup Texas quarterback Sherrod Harris won't return for his final season so he can focus on getting his degree.
Harris said Friday he had "a couple of tough semesters" and wanted to stay on track to graduate in December. He is majoring in corporate communications.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder from the Dallas area played in five games during three seasons as a backup to Colt McCoy.
The backup battle will be between a pair of freshmen — Connor Wood and Case McCoy, Colt's brother.
