Tate Forcier Training With Jeff Garcia, Drawing Interest From CFL, According To Report

The saga of former Michigan Wolverines quarterback Tate Forcier took another turn recently.

On Thursday, Joe Schad of ESPN reported that Forcier claims to be training with former NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia in San Diego. Forcier also stated that there are a few CFL teams interested in acquiring his services.

At last report, Forcier had withdrawn from classes at his last school, where he tried to make a go of it as a member of the San Jose St. Spartans. It appears as though Forcier is taking the less-traveled route of independent training to his goal of professional football, since college ball has not really panned out for him so far.

The Forcier journey has had more than a few twists and turns along the way. Forcier left Michigan in January of 2011 after he was declared ineligible for the Gator Bowl and was replaced on the Wolverines by Brady Hoke. He had initially intended to transfer to the Miami Hurricanes, but as with many other elements of this story, that didn't go exactly as planned.
