MISSOULA — Former Montana Grizzlies running back Jeremy Calhoun will be in search of “other opportunities” to use his final season of college eligibility, he said in a statement.

Calhoun closed his time at Montana with 1,826 rushing touchdowns yards, the 10th most in program history, and 27 touchdowns on the ground, the fifth most, in 36 games. He had 32 receptions for 233 yards and one touchdown.

The senior from Long Beach, California, was suspended for the first two games this season for violating the student-athlete code of conduct. He later pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, missed a third game for an undisclosed reason and missed two games with an undisclosed injury.

Calhoun finished the season with 206 rushing yards, 41 receiving yards and two rushing touchdowns in four games. He can play another season because of a new NCAA rule that allows athletes to redshirt if they’ve played in four or fewer games and haven’t redshirted already, which he didn’t, playing as a true freshman.

Calhoun sat out of Montana’s game against Idaho on Nov. 10, and head coach Bobby Hauck said afterward that “he decided not to play anymore.” On Nov. 12, Hauck said Calhoun “didn’t want to play anymore” when he was asked what events led to Calhoun no longer being on the team.
