Michigan QB Shea Patterson’s attorney will not sue NCAA to gain immediate eligibility, report says

The attorney for Shea Patterson, the Michigan QB who transferred from Ole Miss, will not sue the NCAA in order for Patterson to gain immediate eligibility, as reported by CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd.

Patterson, who passed for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns with 9 interceptions with Ole Miss this season, can still play immediately through a waiver request.

Patterson’s attorney is Tom Mars, represented former Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt in Nutt’s suit that alleged Ole Miss officials violated an agreement when they made disparaging remarks about Nutt.

Usually, when an FBS player transfers to another FBS school, a player has to sit out a year, unless the player is a graduate transfer. However, with Ole Miss on a bowl ban, rising seniors can transfer and be eligible to play right away. Patterson, however, is only through his sophomore season and has two more seasons of eligibility. Because of that, he has to apply for eligibility through a waiver.
