Former Georgia Quarterback Medically Retiring From Football

J.T. Daniels

Rice quarterback J.T. Daniels is medically retiring from football after suffering multiple concussions over the course of his lengthy college football career.

The former Georgia signal caller was advised to retire by his doctors and will now look to enter the coaching space, per ESPN college football insider Pete Thamel.

Daniels, 23, was advised to end his football career after suffering a concussion in a loss to SMU in November. After that, he sat out for the Owl's remaining three games of the regular season.

"I’m definitely excited to get into coaching, that’s for sure," Daniels told ESPN. "I loved playing. I always knew one day I’d coach. I didn’t think it would come this soon. But one day, I knew that’s what I was going to be doing.”

Daniels is one of the many quarterbacks who took full advantage of the new transfer portal era. After beginning his career with two seasons at USC, he transferred to Athens for another two years with Georgia. He played at West Virginia in 2022 before transferring to Rice for the 2023 season.
