                       === USC QB Wittek to transfer ===
 
 Los  Angeles, CA  (SportsNetwork.com) -  USC quarterback  Max Wittek  will not
 participate in spring practice and has elected to transfer to another school.
 
 The  Los Angeles  Times  first  reported Wittek's  decision,  which was  later
 confirmed by Trojans head coach Steve Sarkisian.
 
 Since  he is on  course to graduate in the spring, Wittek will be able to play
 in  the  upcoming 2014 season.  The former four-star  recruit has two years of
 college eligibility remaining.
 
 "We  thank Max for  his contributions to Trojan football and wish him the best
 in his future," said Sarkisian in a statement Wednesday.
 
 Wittek  lost a  battle with Cody Kessler for the Trojans' starting quarterback
 job  prior to  the 2013 season and  attempted just 26 passes in a backup role,
 completing 14 for 212 yards with one interception.
 
 The  20-year-old  started the final two  games, including the Trojans' loss to
 Georgia  Tech in  the Sun  Bowl, in  place  of an  injured Matt  Barkley as  a
 redshirt freshman in 2012. Wittek completed 36-of-69 passes for 388 yards with
 three touchdowns and five interceptions over five games that season.
