Demry Croft, the sophomore quarterback who started the final six games of the 2017 regular season for Minnesota, announced he was transferring from the program on Sunday.
On Monday night, Croft took to social media to give the reason why he is leaving the Golden Gophers.
Hint: It involves a door.

“First off I’d like to thank the Minnesota department of education and staff for the past years. I would also like to thank Coach Kill for recruiting me and giving me the opportunity to build. I would also thank the coaching staff for this past season. After this semester ends I will be transferring from the University of Minnesota. Due to the unfortunate situation I have decided to leave the football program and the university of Minnesota. I was falsely accused of damaging a door. Which I was indefinitely suspended for. The video clearly shows my innocence. Which has created a very uncomfortable environment. Which my family and I have decided to depart from the University and start a new chapter.”
In the 2017 season, Croft completed 41.8 percent of his passes while throwing 4 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He also ran for 309 yards and 4 touchdowns.
