After playing three seasons for Tennessee, quarterback Quinten Dormady transferred to Houston.

Playing in just one game for the Cougars, Dormady is now taking his talents to Central Michigan as a graduate transfer.

Dormady is automatically eligible for the 2019 season, and it will be his only with the Chippewas. He was a graduate transfer for Houston, but the quarterback did not play and took a redshirt. 

"During that time, I was able to redshirt, which allowed me to get healthy, stronger and faster," Dormady said. "I now have the opportunity to play my final collegiate season at Central Michigan University."

The 6-foot-4, 222-pound signal caller has played in 14 college football games, completing 102-of-181 passes for 1,290 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions.

Dormady made five starts in three seasons with Tennessee from 2015-17. He began the 2017 season as the Volunteers' starter before a shoulder injury requiring surgery cut his season short.

In his first career start for Tennessee in 2017, Dormady led Tennessee to a 42-41 double-overtime win over Georgia Tech. He tossed for 221 yards and two touchdowns in the win.

For Houston in 2018, Dormady sat behind D'Eriq King, who completed 219-of-345 passes for 2,982 yards, 36 touchdowns and six interceptions. Clayton Tune worked as the backup and Dormady was able to take a redshirt due to only playing in one game – completing 2-of-5 passes for eight yards. 

Coming out of high school in the 2015 class, Dormady was a four-star quarterback prospect, rated No. 271 in the nation, No. 11 at the pro-style position and No. 40 in the state of Texas, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Dormady, hailing from Boerne High School in Texas, had offers from Tennessee, Alabama, Houston, Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma State, TCU, UTSA and Vanderbilt. 

Playing for his father, Mike Dormady, in high school, Quinten totaled nearly 6,000 passing yards in two varsity season with 59 touchdowns passes while adding 261 rushing yards and five scores.
