MANHATTAN — Freshman quarterback Billy Cosh has left the Kansas State football program after one season.

After spending a redshirt season with the Wildcats, the 6-foot-1 son of defensive coordinator Chris Cosh decided to transfer to James Madison of the Football Championship Subdivision.

In a statement, K-State coach Bill Snyder said the decision was based on a desire to compete for a starting position next season.

"I'm pleased that Billy will have the opportunity to get on the field quickly in a program that features the passing game," Snyder said. "Billy is obviously a dear friend and a great young man. He loved Manhattan and our program and players but simply felt by transferring he could gain more immediate playing time."

Cosh, of Gambrils, Md., was a record-setting quarterback at Arundel High School. During his prep career, he threw for 3,913 yards and 56 touchdowns.

Had he stayed at K-State, he would have competed for playing time with returners Collin Klein and Sammuel Lamur as well as newcomers Justin Tuggle and Daniel Sams.
