STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Quarterback K.J. Costello says he is leaving Stanford to finish his college career playing for Mike Leach at Mississippi State.
Costello announced his decision via social media on Monday, less than a month after Mississippi State hired Leach away from Washington State.
Leach's teams have led the nation in passing in 10 of his 18 seasons as a head coach at Texas Tech and Washington State. Mississippi State averaged 179.5 yards passing per game this past season to rank 12th out of 14 Southeastern Conference teams.
