Demry Croft, Minnesota’s sophomore QB who started the final 6 games of the 2017 regular season for the Golden Gophers, announced he was transferring from the program on Sunday.
One day later — on Monday night — Croft took to social media to give the real reason why he is leaving the Minnesota program.
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.”
Croft may or may not have damaged a door, but if that’s all it takes to get bounced out of the Golden Gophers’ program, first-year coach P.J. Fleck may need to loosen the strings a little bit.
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.
