Nebraska quarterback Patrick O'Brien planning to transfer

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska quarterback Patrick O'Brien said Thursday he plans to transfer because he isn't a fit for the spread-option offense being installed by new coach Scott Frost.

The school said O'Brien's request for a release will be granted. Former coach Mike Riley recruited O'Brien to play in a pro-style offense. Frost brought his spread-option with him from Central Florida, and O'Brien realized after eight spring practices that it wasn't for him.

O'Brien posted a message on Twitter in which he thanked Frost and his staff. He said he learned a lot in the short time he spent with them "but it just wasn't the right fit."
